YOUR CAREER AWAITS. YOUR ADVENTURE AWAITS. Arkansas White River Health System is a regional healthcare organization serving a ten-county area of more than 110,000 that includes Batesville, Mountain View and Cherokee Village, Arkansas. Here you'll find a fulfilling career and a lifestyle well-suited to those who enjoy outdoor activities. The area offers an affordable cost of living, quality school systems, and residents with a friendly, welcoming nature. that flows through town, residents find recreational opportunities just footsteps away on the multi- use greenways. Destinations within the city include the Folk A rts Center and Shindig on the Green, a folk festival that had its 52nd season this summer. Asheville's entrepreneurial spirit is another important aspect of the region. "People decide to move here and say, 'let me figure out how to create a job,'" says Leonard. Because the city is an attractive place for multiple reasons, there is a mix of people who live there. That dynamic results in varied cultural opportunities with something for just about everyone. Kaufman, who came to Asheville for the outdoors, says he has not been disappointed, nor has his wife or two sons. "Everything you could want to do, from whitewater kayaking to rock climbing, is all right here." When he is not working, he enjoys hiking, fishing, trail running, camping and "tiring out my boys off the beaten path." He and his family are also very involved in the religious community in Asheville, and he regularly volunteers at the Western Carolina Rescue Ministry.

"I have been extremely fortunate to work in great institutions with very talented staff. I can honestly say I have never been at a place where people are as caring as at Mission Hospital. I am privileged to be a part of this team."

Walla Walla is situated in a largely rural area, so you might not know about the robustness of the medical community or its higher education opportunities. Small town friendliness is a way of life here, and residents enjoy the area's laid- back vibe while never running out of things to do.

The gold rush brought many settlers to the area during the mid 1800s, and the Walla Walla of today reflects the historical significance it had over a century ago. It is a small city of approximately 32 ,000, but the cultural and professional opportunities are considerable. "What struck me regarding the job here is that though Walla Walla is quite rural, it really had a rather remarkable medical community," says Timothy Davidson, M.D., chief executive of physician services at Providence St. Mary Medical Center. A Portland native, Davidson attended medical school at Oregon Health & Science University before completing his residency in internal medicine at University of Colorado Denver, when he decided to specialize in pulmonary and critical care. He then did a fellowship at the University of Washington. Though he was not set on a specific location
