Retirement Yenta has three homes. She tries to spend as much time as possible at each. Heaven forbid something go wrong with her health when she is away from her primary residence (NYC). For this reason, your dear Yenta has lined up primary care physicians in each of her communities and made sure they are all informed of her base line numbers (i.e., cholesterol count, blood pressure, hormone levels, all those numbers you never wanted to know, but have to know now.) Retirement Yenta has also researched local hospitals. It is important that you know reputations and speciality areas of your local healthcare centers.
