When I was growing up, I heard the saying your health is more important than your wealth, while I didn’t fully understand that as a kid. The older I get the more those words make perfect sense to me. It seems like after 35 your body just takes a little longer to respond, and things hurt a little more than when we were younger and staying more active. But we are in luck here in Tyler, Texas because if anything happens to us we have 2 of the best hospitals in the world in our backyard. 

This past weekend I was scrolling through LinkedIn and I found that an old friend of mine posted a link from Newsweek about the top hospitals in the country. Because I know that health care is a big industry here in East Texas I was interested to see if we had hospitals that made their list and sure enough, we had 2 that made their top 500 hospitals list.
