Thanks a lot.
Are you in the "burbs"? We are planning to move to Woodlands. Any suggestions for a good subdivision near the hospitals? I looked at the website of Willowbrook Methodist, I guess their critical CCU patients go to TMC.
Hope to hear from you.
I live in The Woodlands, myself. However, I live in the "back" (Sterling Ridge) and the drive in morning traffic to Willowbrook is only a few minutes longer than to St. Lukes or MHTW.
As far as CCU patients, right now we do transfer patients requiring CABGs or transplants downtown, but this will change over the next year and a half. If you were to come here you'd help shape the way our surgical ICU works as it develops.
Besides surgical, we do have fairly sick patients. Looking at our board right now, 2 of our twelve rooms are closed temporarily due to construction, so that leaves us 10 beds for the next week. We currently have 5 vents and two IABPs going, and we're about to send one of the IABPs for major abdominal surgery (here, not transferred out), so there's definitely plenty of action (we don't have any neuro, though).
For our tuition reimbursement, there's $2500 per calendar year, however there's a program for $7500 yearly tuition that requires a two year commitment to work post graduation.
