CHOP stands for, as I'm sure you know, Children's Hospital of Phila. which is not just the main hospital but all the research and statellite facilities so they are huge just by themselves. Penn Presby is part of Penn Med(HUP, Pennsylvania Hospital, P. Presby, Perelman School of Med). I forget about Shriner's. The other pediatric hospital is St Christopher's(part of Temple Health).

Agreed. Bypass Give it another 10 years maybe then.

I'm going to second Philadelphia. There are tons of huge hospitals that pay well, most of which are within (Center City and University City). There is also a large, diverse gay community of all stripes here as well. Not to mention that housing is much cheaper then a place like New York, San Francisco, DC, etc. Also, winters aren't that bad at all. Snow is more the exception then the rule, and it hardly lasts when it does fall.

Remember, the only truly warm-weather cities in the contiguous US, where it's rarely ever cold, are Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Everywhere else, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Tampa and Orlando, get rather chilly in the wintertime. Not frosty in the same respect as Dallas or Atlanta, or snowy like NYC or Philly, but chilly nonetheless.

FYI - it's been freezing in Los Angeles all week long.

To be clear Philly is NOT like Boston which, winter before last, got 7 feet of snow. Nothing like that has ever happened in Philly. Philly has had snowless winters. A couple of days ago it was nearly 70F and Christmas 2015 was pretty warm. Now, I'm saying the former to "impress" the OP about mild-esh winters in Philly and we will have a serious winter next year with back to back snow storms in Jan/Feb.

Nice try! It was 70 degrees in Providence, RI, which is less than an hour southwest of Boston, last Christmas Day, too. Also, that was a once-in-a-lifetime event that we will probably never experience again in our lifetimes.

To claim that Philly is significantly warmer or less snowy than Boston in the wintertime is disingenuous at best.

As a native Southerner that has actually lived in metro Philly, the fall and winter seasons there aren't *too* bad, especially taking into account the effects of global warming. It was 70 degrees Christmas day in the Philly area last year. So depending on the OP's tolerance for colder weather, Philly could work. But my vote is still for Atlanta.
Philly is cold and I lived there for 10 years. 34 or 44 degrees for 4 to 5 months is not something someone seeking "warmer" weather aspires to although I do realize Philly is the magical wonderland nearly everyone on this forum makes it out to be, regardless of criteria.....that was sarcasm. I agree Atlanta or points south make the most sense if putting aside chamber of commerce tendencies.
