The Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House is a home away from home for caregivers of patients at St. Mary’s Hospital. It is a place of peace and healing for our patients and their families. With 16 guest rooms, the 14,000-square-foot Guest House is within a safe and easy walking distance of St. Mary’s Hospital. Guests will have the companionship of other families going through similar experiences. Volunteers and community partners will stand by to answer questions, help locate necessary services and goods, and provide a sympathetic ear and a hand to hold.
