Can a hospital prevent an occupational therapist from working for another hospital in a non-compete?

I accepted an offer for employment in another state via phone conversation. I quit my job, sold my house and was in process of moving to Illinois. I was then told I had to sign a non-compete or the job wouldn't be here for me, so I signed it, feeling I had no other option. I now would like to work for another hospital in the same city. My current employer is trying to hold me to a non-compete. My question is...if I possess no trade secrets, have no client base (I work on the floors of a hospital, not in outpatient), and have received no specialized training from my current employer, is the non-compete enforceable?
