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.
