The greater Sacramento region is home to nearly two million people still the area manages to combine the desirable traits of a metropolitan city with the charm of a rural community.
Methodist Hospital is located about 15 minutes south of downtown Sacramento, California’s capital, near the city of Elk Grove. With a current population of nearly 130,000, Elk Grove is one of the 10 fastest growing cities in the nation, yet housing prices remain affordable, starting in the low $300,000s.
Sacramento and Elk Grove residents enjoy mild winters with moderate rainfall and Mediterranean summers with minimal humidity and a cool delta breeze in the evenings. Spring and fall are temperate and comfortable and are the ideal times to enjoy the numerous outdoor activities the region offers.
With a living history dating back to California’s Gold Rush days and a future bright with
technology and sophistication, Sacramento offers virtually unlimited cultural and recreational opportunities. In addition, Elk Grove hosts a number of annual festivals including the renowned Strauss Festival held each July in Elk Grove Regional Park.
Area residents can enjoy a blend of fine dining, theatre, community events, recreational and professional sports. Plus, ideally located in Northern California, day trips to San Francisco, visits to the Gold country, snowboarding and skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains, the beauty of Lake Tahoe and wine tasting in Napa Valley are all within a two-hour drive.
