St. Ann Center is inspired to join with the north side community and grateful at the opportunity to enhance the area’s existing strengths and beauty for everyone to see. The Bucyrus Campus will expand St Ann Center’s nationally award-winning programs, which will provide access to intergenerational comprehensive community-based care for people of all ages living with physical and cognitive disabilities and Alzheimer’s disease. The new St. Ann Center Bucyrus Campus will play a role as a neighborhood anchor institution and serve as a collaborator with neighborhood-based partner organizations and residents in economic, educational and civic renewal efforts.
“It is my wish that every community in the United States have the opportunity to provide the intergenerational concept of care and offer an alternative to the premature institutionalization of our elders.”
— Sr. Edna Lonergan, President of St. Ann Center
In less than 30 years, St. Ann Center has grown from four beds in the basement of St. Francis Convent into a flourishing multi-generational, multi-purpose agency serving hundreds of adults and children. Their intergenerational national model stands as one of the first in the country to offer dementia specific and comprehensive community-based health care fully integrated for all ages under one roof. St. Ann Center provides for the personal, psychosocial, medical, nursing and basic human needs of all adult clients and children offering intergenerational activities to nurture and promote family, community, diversity and support.
