About Springfield

Springfield, Missouri, has something for everyone. The third largest city in Missouri sits among the Ozark Mountains, pristine lakes and abundant wildlife, yet offers all of the amenities of a city. Springfield offers nightlife, festivals, museums, shopping malls, semi-professional sports and great restaurants.


Welcoming neighbors, strong job markets, low cost-of-living, excellent schools, superior health care, abundant outdoor and recreational opportunities, beautiful neighborhoods and a temperate climate with four brilliant seasons have made the region one of the fastest growing in the nation.


Best of all is the central location that provides quick, convenient access to several major cities, such as St. Louis and Kansas City, MO; Tulsa, OK; and Fayetteville, AR.


In addition, major airlines serve passengers at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport, providing daily service to major hub locations, including Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Memphis and St. Louis.


The community supports a rich learning environment and is home to a variety of public and private higher educational institutions including Missouri State University, Drury University, Evangel University, Southwest Baptist University, Cox College of Nursing and Health Sciences and several other technical and business colleges.


Health care is a leading (and rapidly growing) local industry, with two of the main hospital systems employing more than 700 physicians and 16,000 staff that support continued growth in services and research.
