HEALTHCARE - BECOMING THE HEALTHIEST NEIGHBOURHOOD IN CANADA
Experts have concluded that our well-being is related to where we live and that a healthy living environment includes physical, social, mental and spiritual aspects. At New Monaco, our goal is to become the healthiest neighbourhood in Canada.
Working with advisors from the University of British Columbia, Stanford University, British Columbia’s Interior Health Authority and many others, a health strategy has been created for the neighbourhood which is based on four basic principles:
1. Provide a wide range of health and medical services;
2. Design the neighbourhood to stimulate and support a healthy lifestyle;
3. Develop a culture of health through health promotion;
4. Develop a long term health research and monitoring plan.
A comprehensive health, fitness and medical services centre will be the focal point of our health initiative. This centre will provide progressive healthcare services and advice on personalized preventative healthcare, vitality and performance improvement. The scope of services includes health consultations, nutrition, fitness, dentistry, family medicine, many medical specialists, naturopathy, physiology, massage, chiropractic medicine, pain management, as well as an imaging facility.
A detailed strategy has been created addressing how buildings, streets, parks, playgrounds, transportation and many other aspects of the neighbourhood are designed to enhance health and well-being.
A world-class spa, recreation centre/gym with yoga and meditation studio will also be available as part of the New Monaco Wellness Programs.
