Hi there. I was born and rasied in Tucson, although life has brought me to now live in Phoenix. Anyways, DO NOT WORK AT KINO UNLESS YOU LOVE LIVING ON THE EDGE. I won't say Kino is awful as a hospital, but it is county on the southside! The south side is horrible! High crime, drugs, poverty, ect. Keep in mind your alittle over an hour away from the mexico border, and Kino is the closest to the border. T.M.C. is ok, but my understanding is that they've done alot of downsizing. Their heart treatment center is supposed to be tops. St. Joe's is nice, U.M.C. is a teaching hospital and is very close to the U. of A. St.Mary's is nice and is close to the east-side. The north-west side of town can be a hassle. The roads in Tucson are small town built, and they haven't done awhole heck f alot to improve them as the population has sky-rocketed. The n.w. side is the newest area to "boom" in population, so going anywhere takes awhile. Although it is a nice side of town, and affordable. If your loking to rent, the east-side is nice. The streets are wider, and traffic isn't quite as heavy. If you look at a map, stay north of Broadway unless your as far east as Wilmont. South-west of that, and your getting into high crime areas. Anywhere east of Wilmont is nice, but you have to hunt around alittle for real affordable. The best I've found for cheap rent in nice neighborhoods, is du-plexes. It's two houses that share a common wall, and they are everywhere in Tucson. If you find one in a nice area, alot have big back yards or pools.
I have never heard of the hospitals you mentioned. But I'm sure if you google Tucson hospitals, you could find some info on what's avail.
GGOD LUCK! It's cooler than Vegas and gets more rain. And it's greener. Make sure you go to Mt.Lemmon and get some pie in Summerhaven. It's a small community on the mountain with some great cafes. And it's real cool up there. Pine trees and all.There are great hiking areas up there. And on Reddington (the east side mountain) there's a natural hot spring you can go swimming in after monsoons hit (flooding dangers). But you need to take heed if you go, nude sunbather frequint there! L.O.L.:chuckle
