Lantern Hill Welcomes its First Residents to Campus

July 12, 2016

Lantern Hill, a new Erickson Living continuing care retirement community located in New Providence, New Jersey, welcomed its first residents to campus June 27.  Residents were greeted by more than 50 employees holding "Welcome Home" signs as they entered Union Square, the large central building on campus. 


"We are so excited to welcome our first residents to campus," said Executive Director Patricia Swan.  "Residents are embracing their new home and enjoying our beautiful campus and fantastic amenities."


Boasting 20 acres of stunning green space and elegant, contemporary architecture, Lantern Hill's independent living community provides a vibrant lifestyle to seniors with abundant amenities and a broad spectrum of activities and services, complemented with integrated healthcare and wellness.


Amenities include three on-site restaurants, all-season pool, Art Studio, Library, fitness center, transportation, 24-hour concierge services, secure underground parking and a theater.


Lantern Hill's on-site medical center is operated by Summit Medical Group, the largest and oldest physician-owned, multidisciplinary medical practice in New Jersey. Residents can enjoy prompt appointments in a location that's just steps from home.


Residents will continue to move into the 161 independent living apartments of Phase 1, which sold out in 10 weeks, this summer followed by the opening of 85 continuing care residences. Within the first few years, the community will add 114 more independent living apartment homes, for a total of 275.
