Health Care With a Senior Focus

The Cedar Crest Medical Center

Imagine having your very own doctor just steps from your door. Located in the Village Square Clubhouse, the Cedar Crest medical center is staffed by full-time physicians and medical professionals who specialize in senior care for our residents.

Here are just a few of benefits:

  • Easy access—The medical center is just a short, indoor stroll through glass-enclosed, climate-controlled walkways that connect most buildings on campus.
  • Prompt service—In most cases, you can get an appointment the same day you call when you sign up as a patient.
  • More time with your doctor—Our full-time physicians practice exclusively at Cedar Crest, so you receive the individualized attention you deserve.
  • Personalized wellness—Our team will help you create a customized plan to stay healthy and independent.
  • More options—You don’t have to switch doctors if you don’t want to. You’re free to visit the medical center on an as-needed basis.

We feel very secure here. It’s nice to know that if something happens, there’s a medical center right on campus.
