The Baystate Health communities are nestled in Massachusetts’ scenic Pioneer Valley, one of the most picturesque stretches of the majestic Connecticut River Valley. An ideal place to live and raise a family, the area offers an enticing combination of big-city cultural offerings, small-town New England charm and immediate access to many scenic and historical attractions, as well as the recreational opportunities of the great outdoors. Boston, New York City, Cape Cod beaches and Vermont ski slopes are all an easy drive away.
Baystate physicians and advanced practitioners have many options when it comes to choosing a place to live. Whether you decide to purchase a home or rent, the distinctive mix of urban and rural areas and easily accessible cultural and recreational activities make the Pioneer Valley a uniquely pleasant place to live and work. For physicians with families, there are several suburbs with excellent top-rated school systems, including Longmeadow and Wilbraham. Many of our physicians also live in the five-college community of Northampton, Amherst, Hadley and South Hadley or in nearby communities such as Easthampton and Deerfield. Others live in historic areas of Springfield, particularly in the Downtown or Forest Park areas.
