Are there any nice areas within 10-15 miles of Tampa's better hospitals and medical centers? Ideally, I'd like a relatively new construction, single family concrete block home in an area that is not low elevation and not in a flood zone.

Channelside/Davis Island/Harbour Island, Carrollwood, Palm Harbor. These have hospitals that could be walking distance.

In Lutz, you have St Joseph North that is within 10/15 minutes form Heritage Harbor, Cheval, Villarosa, Stone Briar. 5 Minutes from Calusa Trace.

Anything away from the water is higher elevation, BUT If it rains hard, flooding can occur, not the kind that will flood your house...but just enough to annoy your driving.

Thanks for your feedback! I know what you mean about flooded streets in the area after rains. Are all of the healthcare facilities in or near the above areas of approximately the same caliber?

Just a fyi - it takes 15 minutes to get from downtown to the north end of the airport on a typical day in traffic. I think that's about 6 miles. Pick your hospital, if it's along the coast your in a flood zone. A flood zone is a little different than a street with crap drainage when it rains. 15' above mean high tide would probably flood Tampa to 275, maybe north of there. Seems I recall our condo lobby was going to be wet at 12 feet on H. Island. I think one storm water was up about 8 or 9 feet. Ashley was underwater south of Kennedy. The "flood" really takes the right set of conditions and preferably a hurricane on top of those conditions. JMHO.

Happy hunting!
