South Chicago/Joliet/Kankakee Hospitals?

  1. Due to hubby's job, may have to relocate to Chicago area. Anyone work in the southern Chicago, Joliet, or Kankakee areas? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks so much. I work in central Illinois right now and love it.

    hi! My Dh and i live in Chicagoland. He staffs for 2 agencies that send him all over. He's worked in Oakpark, Hyde Park, Hoffman estates just off the top of my head. I know that south chicago is supposed to not be the safest area, but i'm not sure. He works full time downtown Chicago tho and LOVES that job there. They have nurses unions there, which is AWESOME for what they do!! Please email me if i can help you in any way!

    I used to live in the Southwest suburbs of Chicago (Bridgeview/Justice/Argo). It has been a few years but I remember that Cook County Hosp and LaGrange Hosp were in my area.
