The Texas Medical Center is the largest medical center in the world. Equivalent to the 8th largest business district in the United States, TMC has over 50 million square feet of patient care, education, and research space. 160,000+ individuals visit the Texas Medical Center each day with more than 6 million patients treated annually. The 1000+ acres is approximately the size of Chicago inside the "Loop" with over 160 buildings on the main campus alone. Join our ArCH docents on this introductory architectural tour of Houston's own modern marvel of medicine. Sites on our tour will include Baylor College of Medicine, the new Texas Children's Hospital Maternity Center, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Methodist Research Center, and a short ride on Houston's Metro Rail.
