Just curious on this but theres a huge difference between Marietta and Columbus GA, is there a reason you're considering both of them?

Budget would also be helpful as well as the amenities you are looking for.

Columbus is much more affordable. Marietta is just a suburb of Atlanta. There are plenty of hospitals in Columbus. Can you give more details on why you are looking in those two areas?

Hey Barb,

Welcome to the forum. Are you sure that you are considering both Marietta and Columbus? If so, I will move this post to the Georgia main forum as this is the Atlanta forum and will draw mostly the Marietta opinions. We have a Columbus forum also that you can read up on.

Columbus has Columbus Regional which is now owned by Piedmont Healthcare which is not a university hospital. There is also a much smaller hospital there that is definitely not a university hospital either.

Marietta has some Emory University hospitals a short drive away that are university hospitals that would fit your criteria.

There is adequate shopping in both areas.

Let us know how else we can help you.

Best.

Maybe you could consider Athens, Ga too? Housing should be cheaper than Atlanta, and traffic much less soul-crushing. I think UGA’s medical school may be associated with Saint Mary’s. The area on the Clark County and Oconee County border has a lot of chain shopping, while downtown Athens has non-chain shopping, and fun affordable restaurants. And, having UGA there is a lot of entertainment and culture on the cheap.

I am going to guess the OP is military/retired military if they are looking at Marietta or Columbus, just a guess.
