The Heffernan Hospitality House

Note: Heffernan House is unable to take new reservations at this time. 

Many families travel to St. Anthony’s Medical Center for treatment. To make their time here less stressful, the Heffernan Hospitality House provides comforting and affordable accommodations for patients and their families. Tucked away in a peaceful, quiet corner of St. Anthony’s campus, the Heffernan House has been a refuge for many during times of illness. The main house features two private bedrooms, one and one-half baths, a kitchen, living room, dining room and TV room. A separate private suite, which includes a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room, also is available. The Heffernan Hospitality House was renovated through funds raised by the Auxiliary, and is operated by volunteers. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of space limitations, families with children under 10 or those needing wheelchair accessibility should seek other accommodations. St. Anthony’s can provide you with convenient alternatives.
