Texas is one of the largest states in the union, not just in terms of area (where it is ranked 2nd) but in terms of image and power. There are reasons why they say ‘Don’t mess with Texas’! But Texas is a friendly state with many booming cities and towns, and many healthcare professionals are drawn there because of the population that needs to be served and because of the tremendous research opportunities; Houston is one of the best places to go for medical care or to conduct research. The Texas Medical Center there is world-famous; more heart surgeries are performed there than at any other hospital or healthcare facility in the world. For doctors, nurses, and other medical healthcare professionals, Texas is often their #1 relocation choice.
