Madison Ranked the 3rd Healthiest City

April 7, 2015 2:39 PM

I was pleased to see that Madison has been ranked the 3rd Healthiest City in the country this week by livability.com!

In determining their rankings, livability.com considered two main factors: health care in terms of access, quality, and affordability; and the city's promotion and enabling of a healthy lifestyle.

The folks at livability pointed to Madison's five hospitals and numerous medical clinics, farmers markets, healthy dine-out options, well-maintained sidewalks and bike paths, and opportunities for outdoor activities during the winter months, in making their selection.

While 3rd is good, we still have work to do. Only two cities away from the top spot!
