Guide to Top US Metro Areas: Dallas


Famous for its cotton history, its oil men, the TV series that bears its name, and the Dallas Cowboys (and their cheerleaders), Dallas¹ latest claim to fame is as “telecom corridor.” Its health industry is equally modern and forward-looking. UT Southwestern is the healthcare education and research engine of this powerhouse community, rising from Army shacks to a world-class institution with 4 active Nobel laureates, more than any other medical school, and 17 members of the National Academy of Science.

In boutique medicine, Dallas is also home to Dr. William Rea¹s Environmental Health Center, the clinic of last resort for many with chemical sensitivities.

Healthcare companies voted Best Places to Work by Dallas Business Journal include Acute Kids Urgent Care, Baylor Health Care System, Medical Edge Healthcare Group Inc., Methodist Health System, and Texas Health Resources.
