One of the Top 100 Best Places to Live

From the natural beauty of our wide-open trails, to the hospitality of our tight-knit community, to the stores we love and the new ones to discover, it’s all here. But that’s just a snapshot of today — because our home city has big plans for the future.

With an average high of 65 degrees in January, you rarely hear the terms “wind chill factor” and “freezing rain” in Gainesville — unless you happen to be watching a national weather forecast. Mild winters and warm summers are par for the course in the Sunshine State. With its beautiful natural landscape, nearby freshwater springs and stunning prairies, Gainesville has been called an “urban forest.”

There’s more to the climate in Gainesville than the weather and scenic environment. There is the climate of innovation and entrepreneurship that has resulted in the creation of a substantial number of new businesses in recent years, making the city especially attractive for dual-career families.

Why Work With UF Health

Benefits to fit your life.
As you would expect from an organization this size, our core benefits include medical insurance and prescription drug plans, short-term and long-term disability, life insurance, generous paid time off, 10 paid holidays per year and an employee assistance plan. Voluntary benefits include tuition reimbursement, dependent care and health care reimbursement accounts, dental insurance, vision plan and more. Retirement benefits include a 403(b) plan.

About The Area
Welcome to the Sunshine State.
There’s a reason the Sunshine State is the tourism capital of the world and the third-most populous state in the country. As a Florida resident, you’re never far from the world’s best beaches, theme parks and attractions (and their Florida resident discounts), and cultural arts. Factor in our favorable tax rate and entrepreneurial spirit, and it’s easy to see why so many individuals, families and businesses choose to make Florida their home.
