America's best employers? A number of them are right here in Texas. Forbes has released its list of the best employers for 2017, featuring several Houston healthcare organizations.

Two Houston hospital giants are in the national Top 10. Memorial Hermann Health System ranks No. 4 on the list and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center comes in at No. 6. In addition to saving lives, the two employ a combined 45,000 people.

Other Houston-based health organizations in the Top 100 include the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston (UTHealth), with more than 7,000 employees, at No. 32; Houston Methodist, with 20,000 employees, at No. 51; and Texas Children's Hospital, with 6,000 employees, at No. 98.

The business magazine teamed up with Statista to survey 30,000 U.S. workers, asking how likely they were to recommend working for their organization to friends and family. The final ranking honed in on companies with 5,000 or more employees.

The City of Austin, which ranks No. 9, is the highest ranking government service on Forbes' list (next is NASA, at No. 37).

San Antonio-based United Services Automobile Association comes in at No. 5. At No. 11 is North Texas-based The Container Store, the third best retailer on the list.

Other Texas companies on the list include San Antonio-based H-E-B at No. 41, Dallas-based Kimberly-Clark at No. 48, and the Dallas-based Neiman-Marcus at No. 63.

The three best companies to work for are Costco, Google, and REI, according to Forbes.
