Villa Marie Claire

Dear Visitors:

The comfort of you and your loved ones is our top priority at Villa Marie Claire and we are working to provide the most elegant residential hospice center in the tri-state area. We are temporarily closed so we can complete substantial interior and exterior renovations to the estate, including constructing a 6,000-sq-ft outside pavilion with a kitchen and fireplace, and a stable and grazing area for therapy horses.

We want you to know that the Villa Marie Claire clinical team is offering inpatient hospice service on a dedicated unit at Holy Name Medical Center. Please call 551-248-4800 or email for more information.

We look forward to you visiting Villa Marie Claire – be sure to check back here for our re-opening date.
