Physician wanting to relocate to west NC-mountain areas from midwest.
Is Asheville or any nearby communities saturated with physicians? How is the reimbursment like?
How close are the ski areas to the communities?
I appreciate any imputs. Thanks!

Asheville's a great area. One of its industries is retirees, so this might be a good area for you if you're in medicine. They even have a VA hospital. Just north of Asheville in Madison County is Wolf Laurel Ski Resort.

It seems to me like every other business is medical-related. We have everything from inpatient rehab centers to radiology clinics. Saturation is the best way to describe it.

However, it is a very nice area.

Just go to Asheville's Mission Hospitals website (Trauma One) and look into professional positions that are available. That should give you an idea of number of job openings and compensation. Saturation versus opportunities can look the same from the outside, but one thing is for sure, this area has top medical assistance, large in scope, because Asheville is the hub of the whole Western North Carolina area, plenty of retirees, with the VA Hospital visited by veterans from all over the mountains.

And as the other poster suggested, Wolf Laurel is too not far from Asheville, I think it's about an hour's drive, starts out easy freeway, then winds its way up as all resorts do. The local TV station puts up stats as to inches of snow there in winter. Further away from Asheville in the higher mountains there's a bunch of ski places, with Boone NC being the central town, home of UNC's Appalachian State. I spent a lot of time in a busy hospital near there after a car wreck years ago, which was continually attending to skiing injuries.

Uhhh, maybe if you're in the field and have also recently relocated there? That's the point of a forum -- ask a question in hopes that someone else reading it might have the info you're looking for or be a provider of info that someone needs or may find useful......

Gauging from the original date of his post, I assume MDS has already made a decision. Looks like this one died on the vine and I am surprised this post wasn't locked.
