I was wondering if any of you have heard about Salinas Valley Memorial in California? Is it a good place to work (ie high turnover or poor working environment)? How is Salinas as an area to live it (high crime rate or boring town)? I'm considering taking a peds or nicu position there but I don't know anything about the area or the hospital. Sorry for so many questions!!
Any suggestions/advice/help would be appreciated!!

is there a high crime rate in salinas?
should I be worried if I'm living on my own? I was planning on renting an apartment really close to the salinas memorial hospital. did you work there? do you know the hospital reputation?
sorry for so many questions!
thanks for your comment!!
I work at SVMH and it is a very safe area. I have moved here from Las Vegas. I am currently staying at the Residence Inn. I, too, was very nervous about moving here, however, I have found it to be a fine place to live. My husband and I have recently bought a home here.
I am the Director of Women and Children's Service at SVMH. There is gang activity in East Salinas, but there is gang activity in every town. Unless you plan on hanging out there you are safe. I have been by myself for almost 3 months and do feel safe.
