Neighborhood Guide: Medical Center Area Houston

The Texas Medical Center is centrally located within the Inner Loop. It has Downtown, Montrose, and Midtown to the north; and West University, Rice University, and the Museum District to the west.

The district is along three major freeways: Loop 610 (I-610), Southwest Freeway (US Highway 59), and South Freeway (State Highway 288).

The Medical Center Area is home to several hospitals, research and academic institutions, support and public health organizations, and medical schools, among others.

The TMC opened in 1945, through an injection of funds from both the state of Texas and the M.D. Anderson Foundation.

Monroe Dunaway Anderson, a wealthy banker from Tennessee, left $19 million in his estate to the foundation. Some of its funds went toward the Texas Medical Center and the University of Texas’ then planned cancer hospital and research center.

Today, the Medical Center is the largest medical complex in the world. Some of its member institutions are located outside of Houston, but the majority of them are located within the Medical Center Area.

The residential neighborhoods around the Med Center grew with the district. Some residential developments, like apartment complexes, high-rise and mid-rise condominiums, and townhomes, have gone up in the district.

The Texas Medical Center Area is under the 77030 Harris County zip code.
