The William Beaumont Hospital is a rising star; the private owner of this hospital invested a lot of money in recruiting well-established physicians to work in this hospital; the geographic population that is covered by this hospital is from one of the wealthiest counties and cities of southeastern Michigan; the patients are usually well-educated, earning >= 200,000 per year and having well-covered health care. You can find the data from US News and World Report, this hospital is ranked among top 50 or even top 25 in many specialties. Usually, residents only need to work 40 - 50 hours per week, much more relaxed than those malignant programs, such as Cook County and Wayne State/DMC programs that exploit residents to work more than 80 - 90 hours per week and on-call schedule. But there is only one New York in the world; so the program in New York State, although it is not a program in NYC, is still attractive. I like New York more than any Mid-West towns. Rank it by your heart since you attended the interview in both hospitals and had the first-hand experiences by yourself.
