Did you know?
Texas can be characterized by it’s..
- Huge Market: US 2nd biggest state in size and population (28.7 million people) and has the 9th largest economy (1.706 trillion GDP) in the world.
- Epicentre of Health: home to most healthcare professionals and health clinics, amongst others the world’s largest medical centre (Texas Medical Centre/TMC), world’s largest children’s hospital (Texas Children’s Hospital) and world’s largest cancer hospital (MD Anderson Cancer Center).
- Health Giants: although the healthcare market is very independent, every health system (hospital) in Texas is larger than any hospital in the Netherlands serving very large regions and populations. Only in Houston, you can find more than 85 hospitals and medical centres, more than the Netherlands has combined.
