Community Health


The health of our community is a critical component to creating an attractive, successful and vibrant place for people to love, play and work.

It is proven that focusing on health and wellness opportunities and integrating health-care services can impact our community’s social determinants of health and subsequent outcomes in a sustainable manner. Springfield must continue pursuing full-scale investment in comprehensive health and wellness opportunities and integration across the continuum of care, which will lead to increased economic development, higher educational attainment and overall improved quality of life.
