Close your eyes and imagine: You wake up in the morning feeling relaxed. You are not in a rush – you have time to enjoy a cup of coffee, read the paper, and prepare your day knowing that you will not have to suffer through an hour of heavy traffic. You’re gaining hours of your life back by commuting only ten minutes to work. Your children are educated by an excellent school system and life is pleasant in a safe suburban neighborhood. This is what it’s like to live and work in a city designed to foster a family.
Ian Sons, Managing Placement Specialist, and consultant Corbin Baird presented an idyllic scenario in this week’s edition of Coffee with Curare. It is not just a daydream: this relaxed lifestyle is highly obtainable! A vast majority of job openings exist in medium-sized towns.
When Less Is More: The Benefits of a Family-Focused Community
As a provider, you want what is best for your patients. As a parent, you will naturally want to choose the best lifestyle for your family needs. A smaller community will offer the work/life balance you’ve been searching for. In many cases, the population has a true need for service, resulting in superior earnings, better benefits, and a substantial patient base in locations with a drastically lower cost of living. Financial success has never felt better!
This is the best time of year to consider options outside of major metro locations. Many smaller cities offer all the amenities of an urban area and more, including TOP notch schools, universities, annual festivals, fine dining, shopping, airport access, and outdoor recreation. Paired with low congestion and safe neighborhoods, these areas are not to be overlooked.
Here are just a few fantastic opportunities to consider before the end of the summer:
Northern Michigan – Home to multiple Fortune 50 companies, this great northern Michigan town has an unbelievable amount of resources and wealth being pumped into the community. Excellent public and private schools make Midland a great place for students. Moderate climate, strong outdoor recreation, easy access to lakes, hiking trails, and more.
Southeast Massachusetts – Outstanding opportunities right between Boston and Providence. Lower cost of living in the suburbs, quick and easy access to major metros, over forty nationally acclaimed colleges, easy airport access, and some of the most gorgeous New England scenery in the country.
Southern Indiana – Curare’s hometown, our consultants know first-hand that Bloomington is a phenomenal place to raise a family. This Indiana college town is consistently rated in the Top 10 places to settle down. A brand new, state of the art hospital is expected to open in 2020. Home to Indiana University, one of the best universities in the nation, Bloomington provides a bustling downtown area with fun for the whole family. Annual festivals, performance venues, and a nationally recognized children’s museum are just a few of the features this great town has to offer.
