St. Vincent House

Ascension St. Vincent serves patients from all over Indiana and beyond. Many patients come to Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis from significant distances, and struggle financially with the costs of hotels and food in order to be near a loved one who is hospitalized.

You are giving families a place to respite at the hardest time in their lives.

St. Vincent House is a dedicated hospitality house that serves as a home away from home for families who live more than 60 miles from Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis, especially those facing financial barriers, based on social worker referrals. 

The facility is designed to be a place of peace, rest and emotional and spiritual refreshment. Amenities like washers, dryers and kitchens provide the comforts of home so that a family can hold on to their family routines as best they can under difficult circumstances.

The St. Vincent House provides:

  • •  20 overnight guest rooms
  • •  Meditation spaces and a chapel
  • •  Family gathering rooms
  • •  A common dining room
  • •  Kitchens and laundry rooms on each level of the residential wings
  • •  A library, a playroom, and a classroom/activity room
  • •  An outdoor courtyard and playground

"After having twin babies who spent 7 1/2 weeks in the NICU at Ascension St. Vincent, I can tell you that having a place like St. Vincent House for parents to rest, relax and bond with other families in a similar situation will be invaluable and reinforce the healing process."
