    You're in luck - Katy has satellite facilities for all of the major hospital systems in Houston. You should apply to Texas Children's for sure. Memorial-Hermann & St. Lukes both have new campuses in that area also. There is no free standing rehab facility in that area right now, but Memorial Hermann has one that is only about 10 miles away - in the Memorial City location (I-10 & Gessner). That's a very short commute for the Houston area - LOL.

    Sorry I don't have any info on salary... you'd need to talk to a recruiter to get specific information because it is based on your experience and education.

    Welcome to Texas!!!! Good luck with your relocation. I would urge you to avoid moving from June through the end of September.... when our climate tends to be 'OMG-surface-of-the-sun' alternating with 'jungle hot', interrupted with occasional tropical storms and hurricanes.
