Best Hospital: Citizens Medical Center
When Citizens Medical Center opened in 1956, it was only two stories.
Now, it has become a medical hub for the Crossroads and was voted by Victoria Advocate's readers as the best hospital.
Citizens Medical Center started performing open heart surgery in 1971. It also has an accredited cancer center and is taking care of generations of babies, spokeswoman Shannon Spree said.
The facility is clean and always looking for new ways to keep its patients safe.
"That's what makes it such a special place. Our team goes above and beyond to treat our patients as a member of their own family," Spree said.
