Hebrew SeniorLife Opens NewBridge on the Charles
Hebrew SeniorLife, a senior healthcare system, announced the opening of the 256 independent living units at NewBridge on the Charles, a continuing care retirement community located on the 162-acre Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Campus in Dedham.
Hebrew SeniorLife broke ground on the $485-million project in June 2007, a press release said. The campus, which is bordered on two sides by the Charles River, will include more than 250 residences for active, independent seniors as well as a community center, fitness facilities, four dining venues, tennis courts, art studios, theater, and convenience store.
"The opening of NewBridge on the Charles is the culmination of seven years of work by Hebrew SeniorLife's board, donors, staff and volunteers," Len Fishman, president and chief executive of Hebrew SeniorLife, said in a statement. "Each day our team works to change the way people think about aging, and we are confident that NewBridge will bring us one step closer to fulfilling this mission."
