Texas Medical Center

image hosted on flickr


Quote:
The Texas Medical Center, with one of the highest densities of clinical facilities for patient care, basic science, and translational research of any location, is the largest medical district in the world. The center is located in Houston, Texas, USA. The center contains 45 medicine-related institutions, which includes 13 hospitals and two specialty institutions, two medical schools, four nursing schools, and schools of dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and other health-related careers. All 45 institutions are not-for-profit. The center is where one of the first, and largest, air ambulance service was created and where a successful inter-institutional transplant program was developed. More heart surgeries are performed at the Texas Medical Center than anywhere else in the world.

The Texas Medical Center receives over five million annual patient visits including over ten thousand international patients. In 2006, the center employed over 73,500 people, including 4,000 physicians and 11,000 registered nurses.

Every building in the first photo and the cluster to the left in the second photo is health related. To the right in the second photo is Rice University.

The new AKH Vienna:



The hospital reaches from the metro line onthe left to to red crane on the right side.

For the scale please have a look the city blocks around the General Hospital (ie AKH)




If you ask yourself how the old AKH looked like:


Picture from the 18th century and the complex still looks that way, but since about 10 years it hosts now university institutes and is now a university campus. The old AKH was one of the first large scale hospitals in history and one that wrote history as well.
