St. Vincent Charity Medical Center’s Rosary Hall to host open house and celebration

Rosary Hall at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is hosting an open house and celebration April 1 from 4-6 p.m. to honor the legacy of Rosary Hall’s founder Sister Ignatia Gavin, CSA, who passed away 50 years ago on April 1. Sister Ignatia’s cousin, Father Jim O’Donnell, will be joining the celebration.

During the open house, guests will be able to tour Rosary Hall, visit with counselors, and learn more about the addiction and behavioral health services offered at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Rosary Hall offers a continuum of care, capable of seamlessly transitioning patients through a process of inpatient medical withdrawal/detoxification to intensive outpatient rehabilitation and into community-based support networks. Regardless of where a patient enters the process, access to care is available 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week.

Founded in 1952, Rosary Hall has been at the forefront of treating alcoholism and drug dependency for more than 60 years as one of the nation’s first hospital-based treatment facilities. Founder Sister Ignatia worked hand in hand with Dr. Robert Smith after he founded Alcoholics Anonymous in Akron, Ohio. Today, Rosary Hall’s innovative efforts continue to be fueled by that compassion as well as decades of proven experience in treatment.

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
