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 development 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.
A range of health hubs are conveniently located throughout Greater Springfield, most of which provide an array of affiliated allied health services and are located close to retail pharmacy facilities.
Health City Springfield Central is the designated central core of the health and wellness offering in Greater Springfield. It is a 52 hectare integrated health precinct which aims to deliver a health and wellness experience for the community through the provision of quality healthcare, medical education and research as well as seniors living.
Wellness in Greater Springfield
Greater Springfield has been designed with key infrastructure designed to invite an active lifestyle, such as Robelle Domain, Brookwater linear pathway, northern sports oval, CBD with centrally located transit centre thus encouraging an active and ‘walking’ community.
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.
Located within the initial developments of Health City Springfield Central will be a community health presence that will service early detection of disease and health promotion initiatives, such as Breast Screen Queensland.
Greater Springfield also has gyms, tennis courts, golf course and sporting clubs to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Shifting Health by Design
Worldwide, our healthcare system today faces escalating challenges. Exponentially rising costs, rising prevalence in chronic disease and an ever increasing ageing population are placing tremendous pressure on our healthcare systems. There is an increasing need to reduce costs, increase efficiency and provide value. Above all, there is a need to truly consider the consumer at the centre, greater health promotion, and to provide incentives for better health outcomes.
The Shifting Health by Design program is focused on provoking innovative thinking and co-creation to shift health from illness towards wellness and explore the future possibility of a better health system.
