  • Months of Sorting, Planning, and Packing Lie Ahead

    Americans move, on average, once every five years. This is prompted most often by a change in job or the size of the family. Whatever the reason, the decision usually means months of sorting, packing, unpacking and making new plans. Unlike families, hospitals rarely move.
