Our community is our nation's capital and The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences is located right in the heart of it. East of the Potomac River, North of the Mall and Lincoln Memorial, West of the Capitol and White House and South of Rock Creek Park. Many of the activities which dominate the national news take place in the a 68 square mile area that has more park land per capita than any other city in the country. The 17 museums of the Smithsonian Institution (free admission), Arlington National Cemetery, Library of Congress, the Mall monuments, the National Aquarium, the National Zoo, the C&O Canal, the Kennedy Center for the Arts, the nearby vineyards of Virginia, the Maryland waterways and countryside and the Atlantic beaches in close driving distance all enhance the quality-of-life for local residents.

There are restaurants to tempt every taste, life-style and budget. Many new restaurants have opened in the past several years in close proximity to the GW Hospital.  A national grocery chain recently opened a store one block from the GW Hospital.

Our residents find housing in many excellent neighborhoods in Washington and the suburbs of Virginia and Maryland.

Our neighborhood is called Foggy Bottom. We're in the neighborhood of the Watergate Hotel complex, The Kennedy Center, The U. S. State Department, several embassies, the National Mall and the World Bank. Foggy Bottom, named for its weather, was once the industrial center of the Nation's Capital.

The Metro, our underground subway system is safe, dependable and comfortable. The Foggy Bottom/ GWU Metro stop is located on campus, immediately adjacent to the hospital.

There are 3 airports serving the area. Washington National Airport is accessible by Metro. There's shuttle service available for Baltimore-Washington International Airport and Dulles International.

The weather can be quirky. It gets cold and snowy and hot and humid; then, it's clear, warm, sunny, breezy and very enjoyable.

Washington is a great place to live, work, and play!
