I need pointing in the right direction. I have been searching and dreaming of moving for two years now. Seems when I find a pretty good place, in time I cannot afford it.

Fortunately I have a great teen son. Unfortunately he has already had a mild stroke. When divorce is final, I will be a lower middle class. I am moving to NC and wanted to live originally in Matthews, then Mint Hill. Really don't feel I can afford them now.

So for affordable housing - 135K or under and GREAT hospital/hospitals - what direction do I go?

I was thinking of Winston-Salem because of Forsyth Medical and Wake Forest University. I love the area of Clayton but looks like their new hospital will bascially be an emergency room and diagnostic facility. We have that in RR now and I have been billed for two ambulance transport to Albuquerque twice in a 36 hour period before. Not good. Need full-service hospital close.

Please point me in any direction in NC.

Thanks.

Duke University Medical Center in Durham is the best overall hospital NC has to offer, so you might want to look in the Triangle area of the state.

I think your idea of Winston-Salem is solid. Baptist and Forsyth are both great hospitals, and I'm sure you could find a nice place in Forsyth or northern Davidosn county that's within your budget.

You could be close to Duke and UNC and live in some of the more affordable areas around the Triangle like south Person County, south Granville County, or eastern Alamance County.

You may want to try this link to Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital in Dunn. They just built a large addition and have radically upgraded their services. They are a non profit hospital. Dunn is a small City with a lot of affordable housing and it is located off Interstate 95. Just another addition to the excellent information you have already received.
