i need your suggestions: can you recommend a small city or town with hospitals that you can walk to from home?
i hate commuting :angryfire , and i'm looking for an environment that has less traffic, noise, and affordable housing would be a big plus. lots of trees, lakes, and beautiful scenery would be ideal. does this place even exist?
fyi: i'm a new grad looking for my first med/surg position.
all suggestions are welcome! thank you!

Portland, Oregon has many good hospitals in residential neighborhoods. I don't even own a car. Anywhere I want to go, I walk, ride my bike or take the bus or train. Many hospitals even pay for the transit pass for their employees. It's 75 and sunny right now, which is a bit warm for early may. The roses are in bloom, the pacific is an hour away, the riverfront is full of joggers and bicyclists. I can go skiing if I like ( Mt. Hood, an hour away has skiing year round, even when it's 80 degrees downtown) Portland has the largest city park in America, the 5,000 acre forest park. The waterfalls of the gorge (highest density of waterfalls in N America) are a half hour away. http://home.vr-web.de/eugen.winklhar...mbiagorge1.htm
All that, it's just about the coolest place you could ever live.
