Established 1989

Light of Hearts Villa provides a supportive residential environment to more than 400 seniors.

Once an all girls high school known as Lumen Cordium, Light of Hearts Villa has a history steeped in tradition, commitment and spirituality. During the late 1980s, the Vincentian Sisters of Charity noticed the enrollment of the high school was decreasing as a need for senior housing in the area was increasing. The Vincentian Sisters of Charity restructured their ministry from youth to elderly. Thus the building was renovated by the original architects to house 90 apartments, a beautiful dining room, a breathtaking chapel and a large activity center.

In 2001, the Vincentian Sisters of Charity partnered with the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in making Light of Hearts Villa a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System. In 2004, the Vincentian Sisters of Charity merged with the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati. The Sisters of Charity Health System became the sole sponsor of the facility in 2014 and continues its active support to enhance and strengthen the mission and vision of Light of Hearts Villa that began in 1989 with the Vincentian Sisters of Charity.
