Respite for Families  

The first (and only) licensed specialty hospital in the state of Indiana dedicated exclusively to serving children who are medically fragile, our nature-inspired home provides respite for families, and so much more. A Rosie Place is a home where caring and supportive people celebrate the gift of life, embrace human diversity, and empower families.

Our services incorporate a family-centered philosophy, the hallmark of our vision, which includes an unwavering mission to embrace and empower children who are medically fragile and their families. The dedicated community of compassionate professionals and lay persons consist of caring business men and women, skilled medical professionals, parents and youth. 

A Rosie Place was designed and fashioned as a safe HAVEN, a warm and welcoming "home away from home." We are a primary source in Indiana for all things medically fragile when it comes to children and caregivers. We appreciate that parents trust and identify our home as theirs, acknowledge A Rosie Place community as extended family, and recognize our services as an indispensable element of their community support system.
