This is the second time that Valley Children’s has received this distinction.

At Valley Children’s main campus in Madera, you’ll enjoy working at this state-of-the-art, free-standing children’s hospital with 358 regional beds. This Level 2 regional trauma center sits on a 50-acre campus on the bluffs of the San Joaquin River, with the Sierra Nevada Mountains in view.

Whether you prefer the snow, the sun or the sand, it’s all within your reach. And with so much varied geography, you’ll also find hiking and biking trails, kayaking, fishing, local wineries, farm stands and festivals, gourmet cuisine, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Another perk: The area is very affordable, and it boasts award-winning schools, making it the perfect choice for families.
