Gathering Places

Provena Life Connections ministries continue to create unique gathering places for patients, residents and families to enjoy.  All are being done to create a more home-like environment. 

Neighborhood Café

"A daughter picks her mom up and takes her to the neighborhood café
to enjoy a wonderful visit complete with a freshly-baked
scone and aromatic chai tea."

You may be thinking this typical outing sounds like a scene right out of your local bakery- but think again!  At Provena St. Anne Center, going out for breakfast, coffee, or lunch is as easy as walking down the hall.  The café, which opened in February 2008, now serves the ministry seven days a week, during the day and evening, meeting the needs of patients, residents, family members, employees and the community.  The cozy café with enticing scents and a light-hearted ambiance has emerged as a popular spot for patients, residents and their family members to socialize.  Walk through our doors to become part of the experience!

Internet Café

Technology and shopping go hand in hand at the Internet Café and Gift Shop at Provena Heritage Village. A daily gathering place for residents, families and staff, it is the ideal spot for coffee, tea, soda and snacks.

Gift and convenience items are on display for sale and Internet ready computers are available for use anytime.

Ice Cream Parlor

The Ice Cream Parlor at Provena Villa Franciscan delights all with its warm sunny ambiance and sweet aromas. Whether your favorite is old-fashioned creamy vanilla or tutti-frutti, a selection of premium ice cream flavors makes every day a double-scoop day! With its comfy chairs and tables, the Ice Cream Parlor is an inviting place for residents, families, and friends to greet, meet, and eat! And, when you want something more, there are a variety of coffees, teas, and popcorn, too.

Gift Shop

Gift shops are popular attractions at our ministries, often bustling with activity of shoppers interested in the wide variety of novelty items the shop carries.  The Gift Shop at Provena St. Anne Center is well-stocked with anything from personal items, such as hair spray, to greeting cards and clothing - all at very reasonable prices.  Patients, residents, and families enjoy browsing in the Shop and are amazed at all it has to offer.  Come check it out, we promise you will not leave empty-handed!
