Serious trauma cases get stabilized there and transferred to Harborview. For heart attacks we give TPA and then transfer to a facility in Olympia or Seattle that has a cath lab. The bottom line is if I was a reasonably healthy retiree I wouldn't be too concerned about access to care.(snip)

Actually Moscow is only about 6-8 miles away from Pullman. And it is a heckuva nice little town. Lots of outdoor activities, mild climate (with 4 seasons), decent shopping (with a larger metro area 70 miles away), nice restaurants, generally good economy...

Anyone thinking of relocating should check this resource out:

Stats about all US cities - real estate, relocation info, house prices, home value estimator, recent sales, cost of living, crime, race, income, photos, education, maps, weather, houses, schools, neighborhoods, and more

It has great data, and interesting forums on each state.

In another forum I frequent there was a comment about Aberdeen's RE. They also said that depression, suicide, is a problem in the area due to the amount of unemployment.

And the rain. Kurt Cobain came from there, IIRC.

Not to mention severe problems with alcohol and substance abuse.

Which are highly correlated with depression.

If I were looking for a retirement community the cost of a house (within limits) would not be my primary criteria. I think overall value is the most important.
