Situated on Academy hill above Horn pond, New Horizons at Choate is within minutes of 128/I-95 and I-93. The Choate Campus initially served as home to Charles Choate and was known as the Choate mansion. It was later converted to Choate Memorial Hospital and then to the current retirement community. Its neighborhood of early Victorians is within walking distance of downtown shops and scenic Horn pond. The building interior is grand yet home-like, with multiple welcoming common areas, dining rooms, a fish pond, an activity area and theater, libraries, a private beauty salon/barber shop, pianos, and free wireless internet access in several locations. Outside are beautiful gardens, a fountain and patio area, a private walking path and several outdoor seating areas. When the weather gets too cold or warm, lounging in the main living room next to the floor to ceiling windows is a comfortable option.
New Horizons residence is connected to Choate Medical Center, which is home to a variety of health care providers including Woburn Medical, a large Winchester Hospital affiliated primary care practice, a specimen collection lab, and an orthopedics/physical therapy practice. Choate Medical Center also houses Davita dialysis clinic, Woburn Nephrology, Moon Hearing Services - an audiology practice and First Steps Early Learning Center child day care. A dental practice is located just across the street on Warren Ave. and several residents appreciate our close proximity to St. Charles Borromeo Church for access to daily Catholic services.
