12 Great Places to Retire for Good Health
The most important component of a happy retirement? It’s not financial security (although that’s nice to have) or proximity to family and friends. It’s good health, says Kiplinger’s Personal Finance in the August 2016 issue.
Kiplinger’s editors chose Augusta, Ga., as No. 5 in the magazine’s 12 picks for Great Places to Retire for Good Health this year. The list published in July on the Kiplinger.com website.
What’s so good for your health in Augusta? The state-of-the-art Augusta University Medical Center, says Kiplinger’s.
Recognized by AARP as an age-friendly city, Augusta is revitalizing its downtown area to add housing, public transportation and sidewalks, making it more attractive to seniors and empty-nesters, says Mayor Hardie Davis. The city is also home to Augusta University Health, a health care network that includes the 478-bed Augusta University Medical Center. The network offers a long list of specialists, including doctors who focus on oncology, geriatrics and senior health.
