Your Community. Your Care. Your Choice.

Our History

Saint Anne Hospice opened on February 9, 1962. It was built and operated by the Sisters of Saint Francis from Rochester, Minnesota. The designation of Saint Anne Hospice signified the type of caring the Sisters wished to characterize in their work with the community. The name “hospice” from the Latin hospitium, meaning “hospitality”, was chosen because the word denotes warmth and friendliness and an atmosphere desired to be characteristic of Saint Anne’s.

In 1997, sponsorship of Saint Anne’s was transferred to the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery, Duluth, Minnesota, patrons of the Benedictine Health System. In 2002, the name of Saint Anne Hospice, Inc. was changed to Saint Anne of Winona to reflect more accurately the spectrum of services we provide. Those services now include assisted living, memory care, rehab services, skilled nursing care, respite care, adult day care, and a nursing assistant training program. Today, the philosophy of the Franciscans continues through the Gospel Values and the Benedictine Core Values of Hospitality, Stewardship, Respect and Justice.
