Home Away from Home is located on the campus of Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. It houses 15 guestrooms, each complete with two queen-sized beds and a private bathroom, telephone, TV and daily housekeeping services. A comfortable lobby, children's play area, vending machines, and a laundry room are also part of the facility. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Who can use Home Away From Home?

Anyone who lives an hour or more away and needs to stay close by, such as:

  • Families of critically ill or injured patients
  • Families of any sick child or neonate
  • Patients and their families who are scheduled for early morning procedures where travel distance is burdensome 

How much does it cost?

We have a suggested $50.00 per night donation.  Those who are in a position to give more offset the cost to those who are financially unable to donate.  We do not send out statements or bills, but simply provide an envelope and payment form upon admission for payment at guest convenience.

How do I request a room?

Call (419) 251-6400 to talk to a representative 24/7.  We do not accept reservations and have arrangements with a local hotel during those occasions in which we are not able to accommodate guests on our waiting list.   Guests are responsible for the cost of the hotel.
