Saint Anne Communities Closing Victory Noll Senior Living Community

HUNTINGTON –  Officials with Saint Anne Communities announced on Thursday, February 1, that its Board of Directors voted to close Saint Anne Communities at Victory Noll in Huntington, effective April 1, 2024, in response to changes in the health care landscape and financial challenges, including those brought on by the global pandemic. The non-profit health care and retirement community has offered Victory Noll residents new senior living options and is assisting employees with job transitions.

“We understand the significant impact this difficult decision will have on our community,” said Dan Kohnen, past president of the Saint Anne Communities Board of Directors. “Consistent with our person-centered care philosophy, Saint Anne Communities is committed to providing emotional and spiritual support to residents, families, and staff during this challenging time.”

Saint Anne Communities at Victory Noll opened in 2017 on the grounds of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters (OLVM) to provide a continuum of care and amenities for retired Sisters and seniors in Huntington County. OLVM officials said they are currently exploring alternative options to ensure that the 12 Sisters residing at Victory Noll can continue to live together after the closure. Victory Noll’s 14 lay residents have been offered new homes at Saint Anne Communities at Randallia Place in Fort Wayne. Saint Anne Communities administrators said they will also assist the 48 employees with alternate job opportunities and provide them with severance packages.

Saint Anne Communities representatives said buyers with community-focused missions will be prioritized in the sale of the Victory Noll property.
