Are you still looking for a home in Tampa? We are preparing to sell our home and it is in an ideal location given the parameters you describe -- it is in South Tampa one block south of Kennedy and two blocks west of Armenia. I work in Ybor City (very close to TGH) as well as at USF -- the commute is under 10 minutes to Ybor and 20 min to USF. The house is a 1920s bungalow with lots of charm and the local elementary school is two blocks away. If you are interested in this kind of a home, feel free to contact me.
Guess you are from India and we are too... if you would like more info, you can contact me at rirmyolarc -at- farifluset.mailexpire.com Thanks
Good luck, you've got a lot of homes to choose from!

Congratulations on your relocation. I know it must be a stressful time for you but with our help hopefully all will go smoothly. My suggestion would be for you to give serious consideration to South Tampa. This is a much sought after area of Tampa and is in very close proximity to Tampa General Hospital as you requested. I work in the South Tampa market and can offer to send you all available listings which meet your criteria.
I would also be happy to send you a link to the Hillsborough County school locator. This link will allow you to enter the property address of any home you have an interest in, to determine the school associated with that address. You may then visit the schools website to determine it's school "report card" or rating.
Valrico and Brandon may offer you additional opportunities to find larger and newer homes in your price range but the commute may be about 20-30 minutes for your wife to TGH. Feel free to view some listings on my website...click on South Tampa Homes and you're off! If I can be of any help at all please send me an email or call anytime.
Thanks and good luck!

If you go to the Real Estates Guides tab on this website you can find out some of that information on Tampa. If you go to the Tampa page and then look down you can get the information for the schools. As far as searching for a home once you decide on where you want to live my advice is to get a local realtor in that area to find you the home you want. If you need a referral to a top agent in that area through my international network I can have them contact you if you just need some information on the area or to help start you search for a home. So just drop me a line if you need anything or have any other questions.
Good luck and happy house hunting
