The Bronx perennially ranks in 62nd and last place among counties in New York State when it comes to health outcomes. That’s why our mission at the Healthplex Fitness Center at the SBH Health and Wellness Center calls for enhancing the future of a community that struggles with one of the nation’s highest rates of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and malnutrition. It’s about keeping people out of the hospital, enhancing the quality of life for area residents and lowering the cost of healthcare.
