Adieu St George, UT and Hello Las Vegas, NV

Aloha Everyone,

J.J. and I are often asked why did we decide to have our PCP (Primary Care Physician) in St George, Utah. Our response: a) because we were able to find Dr. Codiga who agreed to be our PCP.  b) based on our preliminary research, St George has one of the top ranked hospitals in the nation c) patient satisfaction is high in St George  d) weather is generally mild and it is a great place to visit e) finally, it is not too far from the Southern California area where J.J. and I visit several times a year.

Driving out of St George, we were impressed by the number of large scale new commercial and residential developments.

According to a recently released report, St. George ranks fifth on the list of fastest growing areas in the United States.  From 2013 to 2014, there was a 2.9 percent population increase. 

The mayor of St George credits the climate, recreation and business opportunities as major draws. He is also mindful that they maintain a manageable growth rate as not to affect the quality of life people enjoy in St George.

Las Vegas, Nevada. 102 degrees HOT. To escape the desert heat for 2 1/2 hours, we chose to see the movie, Ben-Hur. While the production and acting were excellent, J.J. and I agreed that the film paled in comparison to the original Ben-Hur starring Charlton Heston.

Aloha -- Cathi
