Mission Statement

The Bronx continually ranks in 62 nd place among counties in NY State for its health outcomes. This is why, from the beginning, the mission of the Healthplex at the SBH Wellness Center has been simple: partner with forward-thinking professionals to create accessible pathways to health for the Bronx families we serve. Bringing greater health equity to a community that disproportionally struggles with one of the nation’s highest rates of poverty, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and malnutrition. It is about keeping people out of the hospital by teaching them how to reclaim their health, by engaging in fitness in ways that are simple and fun, technologically innovative and that satisfy the basic human desire for community, i.e., a place where you do not feel judged, and are a part of something special.
