On-Site Medical Center at Linden Ponds

Top-Quality Senior Health Care

As a Linden Ponds resident, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a medical center, pharmacy, and full team of dedicated physicians right on campus. From routine check-ups to urgent care, we have you covered.

  • Personal attention. Your doctor will get to know you as a person, not just a patient, since they can spend more time at each appointment.
  • Same-day appointments. Because they only see Linden Ponds residents, our doctors can often see you the very same day you call for an appointment.
  • Unmatched convenience. The medical center is a short indoor walk from your apartment home door, and you can pick up prescriptions at the on-campus pharmacy.
  • Skilled doctors and nurses. Linden Ponds doctors are professionals who understand the unique needs and goals of older adults at our community.

My doctor and dentist and podiatrist are all right here. I just take the elevator and go downstairs. It’s that easy.
