FREE List of Bank Owned Homes in Glendale & Peoria Arizona: http://www.623BankOwned.com
Glendale is a very large area and it encompasses some of the best neighborhoods and some of the worst in the valley. If you find a home that you like I strongly suggest you drive the neighborhood and go visit the grocery store that you would visit. The people in that grocery store are your neighbors, so it gives you a very good idea of the area. I also suggest you check this link to crime statistics, http://www.glendaleaz.com/police/CrimeStats/index.cfm ,but be sure to consider whether or not there is a mall, movie theatre, bars, etc in the area that might skew the statistics.
As for hospitals, there are a few including Maryvale Medical Center and Thunderbird Medical Center, but depending on your concern Glendale puts you in the middle of some of the best hospitals in the country.
If I can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me.
