Admissions

We invite you to experience Villa St. Joseph’s home-like environment and learn about our services by visiting us. Interested persons are invited to contact our Admissions Office at 724-869-6301 in order to discuss your individual needs and arrange for a tour.

Admissions are considered based on each person’s unique needs and bed availability. Residents and families are welcomed in a spirit of genuine hospitality to “neighborhoods” which emphasize care that is centered on their personal needs. 

There are four neighborhoods:  Fontbonne, Carondelet, Ebensburg and Baden. Each neighborhood is named for a time period of the Sisters of St. Joseph’s history of ministry. Neighborhoods are designed to provide a comfortable, home-like environment in which life is respected, nurtured and celebrated with a sense of community. In addition, each neighborhood is overseen by a Registered Nurse/Neighborhood Manager who coordinates all clinical care and services for residents. 

Each neigborhood offers views of our beautifully landscaped campus, which provides natural ambience indoors and out. Neighborhoods feature spacious resident rooms, country kitchens for dining, living rooms, sunrooms and bathing areas. Residents are encouraged to personalize their living area with furnishings and belongings that hold fond memories. Cable TV, internet and private telephone services are available. We offer on-site beautician and barber services as well as transportation and escort services as needed.

 

Baden Neighborhood

The Baden Neighborhood provides rehabilitation and skilled services for residents whose need is short term, or who are planning to return home to the local community. Examples of services include short-term rehabilitation for a follow up to orthopedic surgery for hip and knee replacements, or strengthening after an acute hospital stay. The focus is a short stay on this neighborhood, whereas other neighborhoods provide the community atmosphere for long term stays. This neighborhood is named for arrival of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph to the present Baden Motherhouse campus in 1901. This was a move from the original foundation in Ebensburg, PA.

Ebensburg and Carondelet Neighborhoods
