Blairsville is a close knit town. Folks stick together and look out for one another. There are lots of part time residents but the ones that stick it out year round take care of each other. Let us know which area you decide on or if you continue your search once you visit. Have you thought about Colorado, Utah, or Oregon? Those particular states are supposed to be really good for allergy sufferers. I think WA state is on the list too. I have visited OR and WA and they are really pretty states. A friend of mine visits Colorado quite a bit and says its very beautiful as well.

A beautiful new physical therapy and workout center associated with the hospital. It is growing exponentially. With that said.. is it a trauma hospital? No. Blairsville will get you stabilized and airlift to Gainesville, Atlanta, or Chattanooga. A friend was recently in a bad car accident. Taken to Blairsville, airlifted to North Georgia in Gainesville. With that said, she said the care she received in Blairsville was excellent and she was well taken care of. Her problems were believe it or not in Gainesville. Hours after she was flown and admitted, we (including her then panic'd husband) were still trying to find out exactly where she was. (For some unknown reason the police and hospital here knew her name but NGH registered her as a Jane Doe???)

All and all, if you are used to small town medicine you'd be pleased. If you're only used to being in a major center with 24-hour trauma hospitals, it'll be a change.
Thanks I am currently living in Pinehurst, NC. It's pretty sticky here in the summer but the health care is second to none because of all the retirees here.I like to golf but also like to hunt and there is no hunting (to speak of here) I was in Dahlongea last year at the end of June but it wasn't much cooler than Pinehurst with less amenities so still looking ..
