McLean Robinson sitting areaThe newly refurbished Robinson assisted living community celebrated a grand opening last month at the McLean Health Center, as an extensive four month renovation project, completed by Newfield Construction, came to a close.

The space was transformed into six new state-of-the-art studio resident rooms complete with full bathrooms, adding much needed capacity to the existing 23 room assisted living neighborhood within the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) on Great Pond Road. Refurbishments extended throughout the existing spaces in the Robinson assisted living neighborhoods.
