My husband and I are wanting to move to one of these states. I am trying to find a Level III NICU to work in that does everything, including ECMO. My husband is also an RN, although he does Med/Surg so he can work just about any where. We are looking for a town that is safe and has good schools
for our kids. We would prefer to be near the coast but are open to other options. Thank you!

There's a hospital in Tampa, FL and and in St. Petersburg. Both are Level III with ECMO except the one in St. Pete does their ECMO in CVICU not NICU.
Both are fairly large NICUs and both are in the process of large expansions.
One hospital is situated on Davis Island, an affluent area of Tampa and there are other, nice and more affordable areas nearby (inner Davis Island, Hyde Park, South Tampa). If you don't mind a 30-45 minute commute, North Tampa and Brandon are a little more family/children sub-division type areas.
The other hospital is in South St. Petersburg... probably not an area you'd want to live in. However, within that 30-45 minute commute, there are some nice places in North St. Petersburg.
Good luck in your search!
You'll have to PM me for names of the hospitals because according to a new policy, employees are not allowed to post anything representative of the hospital on public forums. Sorry.
