How can I use LinkedIn to get a job in a new city?

Teradude and I may move after I finish my masters degree. I am very well connected in my current city, with basically no contacts in my field (healthcare, nonclinical) elsewhere. My strategy to find a job includes contacting alumni, asking my network if they know anyone in our targeted cities, and applying to jobs I see online (though it is early for the last one).
Additionally, I feel like I should be using this LinkedIn thing. Should I cold-message recruiters at my target organizations? Is that a thing? And if so, should I do that before seeking other contacts at these organizations, or in parallel? Any other suggestions?
