FALL 2014 | 79 League teams for kids. Adding to the sports enthusiasm in general has been the USA Youth Sports Complex, which was built in 1996 and incorporates 15 soccer felds and four for baseball. "It's the largest soccer complex in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the Mid- west," Ten Haken says. Now teams from as far as Kentucky and the Dakotas head to Appleton for 15 annual sports tournaments (fve or six are soccer). Visitor spending adds an estimated $3 million to the city coffers. Other aspects of the city's sports ambience are golf clubs, a roller rink, a family ice center, and the Appleton Curling Club. Wisconsin winters in this area are also conducive to ice skating as well as cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. In warmer weather, "camping, hunting and fshing are only an hour and a half away as well," reports Nathan Grunwald, M.D., who adds that Milwaukee, the same distance to the south, offers a wealth of cultural experiences. He can cite a plethora of reasons for return- ing to his hometown after going afeld for his education, frst to Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, then to the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwau- kee, followed by resi- dency at Waukesha Memorial Hospital, 15 miles from the Beer City. He now practices family medicine with ThedaCare Physicians in nearby Menasha and has affliations with the seven member hospitals in the ThedaCare group, including Appleton Hospital. The group itself recently joined a pioneering statewide part- nership of fve hospital organizations. Aside from the fact that he's affliated with one of America's most forward-looking hospitals, Grunwald lists life assets not always found in many of today's cities. 1: "It's a great place to raise a family. Wisconsin generally consistently ranks high, and the Fox Valley in particular, in (publications) like U.S. News & World Report and USA Today." 2: "The cost of living is below average, but average reimbursements across all jobs are actually above the national average."
