Big Cities, Big Bucks: Biggest Employers in America's Top Ten Cities


6. Houston

They say everything’s bigger in Texas ­ so Houston’s Texas-sized growth rate is right on the mark. The 8th fastest growing city in America, Houston’s projected to grow 20% between 2007 and 2012.

Houston’s healthcare circles feature the larger than life. The venerable Houston heart surgeon Michael DeBakey, 99, pioneered the coronary bypass surgery, receiving a Congressional Gold Medal. Methodist Hospital’s ranked one of the Best Places to Work in U.S. News and World Report’s annual ratings. And the city itself just launched a health insurance comparison web site, which shows you how important healthcare is to Houstonians.
