Life at McCormick

A Lifestyle Designed for Healthy Living

Posted January 1, 2018

At McCormick, healthy living has never been easier.

Homebuyers are concerned with more than four walls when choosing a house to call home, including the lifestyle of the community where the home is located. A four-part PBS series on the topic of healthy living, titled Designing Healthy Communities, the series examines the connection between community design and such growing public health problems as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma and more. As revealed in the series, many of America’s current health crises can be traced to poor community planning of the mid-20th century.

Good Design
Many of the attributes of McCormick, as identified in the series as contributing to residents’ health and well-being are:

Walkability: Well-designed communities are walkable and connect neighborhoods and encourage less dependency on automobiles. And more walking brings more social engagement, more time outdoors, more recreation, more smiles and more ‘life’ in every way.

Family-friendly: New home communities that offer a wide range of amenities including athletic courts, playgrounds and trails encourage a more active and healthy lifestyle.

Access to nature: Walking trails, parks and nature preserves contribute immeasurably to a community’s quality of life while also offering improved air quality. And more walking brings more social engagement, more time outdoors, more recreation, more smiles and more ‘life’ in every way.

Strong social fabric: Clubs, interest groups and organized resident events and activities foster a sense of community, resulting in lower incidences of isolation and depression.
People choose McCormick for its high quality of life. Residents of McCormick have access to first class medical technology, ambulatory and acute care services.

Centrally located, Harrison Medical Center is a community hospital serving Kitsap. With three campuses, including one in Port Orchard, Harrison offers an impressive range of specialized services including surgical, general medical, intensive care, pediatric, maternity and comprehensive cardiovascular services, a state of the art radiation oncology center and Level III Trauma Center. The Harrison Port Orchard complex has recently finished a major renovation and addition to its site.

Kaiser Permanente also has facilities in Kitsap County with several clinics throughout the county including a large clinic in Port Orchard.

Just south of Kitsap County is another Medical Center complex that Harrison Medical Center recently became affiliated with, St. Anthony Hospital – Franciscan Health System.  St Anthony’s provides state-of-the-art medical care, 24/7 emergency services, sophisticated in- and outpatient surgery, and complete outpatient cancer care.
