Health and Wellness Planning in Greater SpringfieldThe planning of Greater Springﬁeld applies a conscious approach to creating an environment where people can live active lives within a wellness focused community. A healthy and vibrant lifestyle is the mantra of Greater Springﬁeld. Investment has been made into the development of open spaces, parks and bikeways, sustainable developments, as well as the incorporation of healthy community initiatives and various other forms of activities. Furthermore where health services are to be developed, they will be done so in a co-ordinated, integrated fashion to ensure patients receive a complete and holistic experience. Health City Springfield Central is the designated central core of the health and wellness offering in Greater Springfield. Adjacent to Health City Springfield Central is the Springfield Central State High School that will be delivering a health curriculum, which will teach students the keys to healthy living as well as introductions to the opportunities for employment in the health industry.
