    The eastern San Fernando Valley is great as long as you stay away from the crime-ridden enclave of Pacoima.

    In addition, there are plenty of nearby hospitals that don't require a lengthy commute. Good luck.

    Thank you very much for the info. I guess that I need to start looking for areas that I am reading are better to live... and then fly on down and check 'em all out if/when I get job offers etc. I read Santa Clarita is on the top 18 cities in the nation to raise a family...hm.... don't know if that is outdated or not.

    The Santa Clarita Valley is beautiful, slightly upscale, scenic, and safe. However, it is grossly overpriced and the inland weather is scorching hot.

    Glendale Memorial staff walk from the metro rail station. There is one from Lancaster.

    The Southbay, Torrance, Hawthorne, Gardena, and parts of Inglewood are nice. I don't need air conditioning and can ride my bike to the beach in about 15 minutes. I drive opposite the bad traffic to UCLA, Cedars, the Marina, Centinela, Santa Monica (St. Johns & UCLA), and downtown hospitals like Good Sam, St. Vincent, and California. It's light traffic if you work days.

    Opposite if you work nights. I think I would work nights if I lived in the Valley and worked in Beverly Hills.
