Medical Center Area Houston Neighborhood Guide

Founded in 1945, the Texas Medical Center spans more than 1,000 acres in Southwest Houston.

Establishment of the district is attributed to one Monroe Dunaway Anderson, a wealthy businessman and founder of the M.D. Anderson Foundation. He left $19 million of his estate to the foundation, and thus partly funded the Texas Medical Center, along with the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

These two developments helped the surrounding neighborhoods grow. The Medical Center Area of today is a bustling district and is one of Houston’s largest employment centers.

Both the name of the organization and the area in which it sits, the TMC is along three major Houston freeways: Loop 610 on the south, Southwest Freeway on the north, and South Freeway on the east.

The Medical Center Area features around 49 member institutions, including the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center/Texas Heart Institute, the Texas Children’s Hospital, the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
