Medical Economics Magazine names Huntsville Memorial Hospital a great place to practice medicine
Huntsville Memorial Hospital has been recognized as a great place to practice medicine by Medical Economics magazine, which also lists Texas as the best state for doctors.
In a July 10, cover story titled "America's best places to practice," the magazine also points out that in No. 1 Texas, the "Best town you never heard of" is Huntsville, "surrounded by the Sam Houston National Forest and includes Huntsville Memorial Hospital and Sam Houston State University."
Reasons Medical Economics cites for Texas' status as the best place to practice medicine include a variety of cities with excellent medical centers, the absence of a state income tax, great compensation, low real estate costs, and tort reform in 2003 that "makes Texas a leader in low cost malpractice liability insurance despite being the second-most populous state in the nation."
