I am interviewing at the hospital in Turlock in the CVICU.... Possibly moving from NC. Any information would be great! I am a single mom and have a 9 year old son.

The air smells bad in Turlock. Some are ultra religious. Most people are really friendly. The hospital is behind the times but no big deal. Housing is affordable. Temps can be hot in the summer.

I think Turlock is a nice town. I've heard good things about the Hospital. I chose Doctor's in Modesto for my delivery of my second child. I was told it was the best. I wasn't impressed. It's close to Modesto and has Stanislaus State University. Looks like you have already made your decision. Good luck!

Just wondering how everything turned our for Alicia in Turlock. My daughter is going to Music camp there this summer at the University. What would be a good city to live in, up that way, in central Valley or at least somewhere where you can grow citrus? I've been looking for several years. Decided on Clovis (Excellent schools) but couldn't find anything last summer and now I'm worried about their lack of water. It's much more serious than the Realtors let on. We looked at some really reasonable houses with acres but nothing that worked for us, last year. I also worry about the air quality. I see from the newest Bee report that it's worse than LA! I live in the desert and we have to worry about the wind constantly blowing dry dirt full of Pesticides from the farms all through Antelope Valley. The Fracking thing worries me too, now that I've read more about it. How far up does the lack of water go? Will people really be hauling in tanks of water for their own houses? Is growing out of the question now? It's hard to find a place to move in an area you don't know and some you have never been in. It Has to be this summer, we have to get out of the desert!
