Medispace is changing the future of primary and lifestyle health by making the patient the priority when designing health spaces – particularly when it comes to integrating hospitality into its spaces. Medispace is working on several projects throughout New Zealand and right now is looking for the ultimate café operator to provide excellent coffee, healthy food and a great atmosphere at the newly opened, integrated health hub in Pakuranga, Auckland. With a stable customer base and approximately 113m2 of dedicated space on ground floor, this is an excellent opportunity for anyone wanting to launch their own café or add to an existing business model.
“There are healthy cafes and unhealthy cafes,” said Medispace CEO Roy Simmons. “It comes down to choices made by the owner, and ultimately the consumer. If a café owner wants to be part of this innovative way of serving the community, they’ve got to buy into the idea of this community- integrated philosophy”.
Creating a space and allowing community members to interact on a daily basis moves primary health away from a fire-fighting approach and towards a preventative one, which is integrated into the community.
“The medical community has been isolated for too long,” said Simmons. “We need to build more facilities that pull people in for lifestyle-health reasons, not just when there’s a medical problem. It’s therefore not just another building, but an urban space that is part of the community.”
Health centres can be preventive by bringing together clinicians and doctors with allied health services such as dieticians, physiotherapists, personal trainers and counsellors. Can a café be healthy? Absolutely.
