Relocate near area hospitals to gain easy access to superior care in Phoenix

Seniors looking to downsize can strategically relocate to one of the houses for sale in Phoenix near a high-quality medical facility. The reduced commute time to a leading hospital can ease the stress caused by travel and provide new options to seniors.

For example, the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute just launched a $100 million clinical trial to determine a method to prevent the onset of Alzheimer's disease, according to the Phoenix Business Journal. It is the first study of its kind and will use an experimental course of treatment to slow the development of the disease in participants who are genetically predisposed.

This is just one example of a Phoenix medical facility practicing advanced medical treatments. Other hospitals such as the Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center or the Arizona Heart Institute may be the ideal facility for a person in need of special care.

Consider relocating to a nearby Phoenix community to take advantage of these local medical options. The median price per square foot of a Phoenix home was $88 as of May 13, 2012, ALTOSResearch reports. This figure can act as a good indicator of the kinds of deals a potential homebuyer can expect in the area.
