I would appreciate your help:

My husband and I will be residents at the hospitals in seattle and will be commuting between UW Medical center, children's hospital, VA and harborview. What location would be centrally located to all these hospitals?

We are looking for a safe place preferably close to decent restaurants and shopping centers (whole foods or other organic grocery stores would be nice)

Also, we are trying to find a reasonable price for a newer apartment.

How is queen ann? How far would it be to the above mentioned hospitals?

Since the areas you mentioned are located in various parts of the city, you'll have many neighborhoods to choose from. A Queen Anne or even a downtown location might be a consideration as it's about the same distance to the locations mentioned only in different directions.

Take a map and take a look at where they are. From the U of W, Children's Hospital is a few miles to the northeast in the Laurelhurst area. Harborview is on First Hill easily visible from the downtown area. VA Hospital is on Beacon Hill not an unreasonable distance from downtown. All are easily accessible by public transit.

The Whole Foods store is in the Roosevelt district, I believe, just a few miles north of the campus.

The fastest resource for apartments or houses to rent is called NWSource, a combined Classifieds from the two leading newspapers in the Seattle area. Here's the link:
That should give you a good start on pricing and locations. You might also want to research on Craigslist.

If you enter "hospitals near Seattle" into a Google Maps search, you can get an idea of where the hospitals are located. Then you can enter "healthfood stores near seattle wa" and find out where they are. Personally I like Madison Market, which is a co-op .... it's near the Capitol Hill district, which is a fun place and which has about everything you need in terms of shopping.
