Transcript The Medical Center* ^ MEV CENTER REMAINS TOP OF THE LINE The Texas Medical Center was established in the 1930s, and hrough the generous donation of philanthropist/business man, Monroe Dunaway Anderson, began to blossom. Anderson had big ideas for the medical community as far as health care went. Gradually, with the help of his trustees, he founded the M.D. Anderson Foundation with an endowment of $300,000. In 1938, Anderson left $19 million in his will to for the Texas Medical Center. "The Texas Medical Center is the leader in the latest research, and also, two of the best medical schools in the country are located there," said sophomore biology major, Jasmine Samuel. The Texas Medical Center continued to develop into a world-renowned institution consisting of 42 non-profit member institutions, including 13 hospitals, two specialty institutions, two medical schools, four nursing schools, schools of dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and health-related careers. The Texas Medical Center is noted for its superb inter-institutional transplant program, and numerous heart surgeries. One of the most important historical landmarks in the field of cardiac transplantation began at the Texas Heart Institute. In 1969, Dr. Cooley, the founder of the Texas Heart Institute, received a call from Dr. Bloodwell that a patient sustained a severe head wound and was available as a heart donor. At the same time, Everett Thomas was a patient at St. Luke's Hospital who was suffering from rheumatic disease and had been bedridden for five months. Thus, Dr. Cooley agreed to the procedure only if the tissue matched the donor and the patient. As a result, Dr. Cooley performed the operation and Thomas immediately returned to work the next day following the operation. The operation was definitely a miraculous event for the medical community, marking the beginning of a new era in medicine and the Texas Medical Center as well. Eventually, the Texas Medical Center, including the Texas Heart Institute, developed new technologies to improve the quality of life for the average citizen as well as ^^^^^^mM| offering jobs and internships for Houstonians. "I've been really lucky to have worked in the Medical Center. It was beneficial for helping me decide a career in medicine," said senior biology major May Nguyen. \< > HME^' The Texas Medical Center consisted of 42 nonprofit member institutions, including 13 hospitals, two specialty institutions, two medical schools, four nursing schools, and schools of dentistry, public health and pharmacy./ -Lan Lou PHARMACEUTICALS The pharmacy at M.D. Anderson dispenes multiple drugs for their patients.
