St. Cloud Hospital Gorecki Guest House
Conveniently located across the street from the St. Cloud Hospital, the Gorecki Guest House welcomes patients and family members who are receiving medical care in the St. Cloud community. The house offers a comfortable, homelike atmosphere that allows families the opportunity to stay close to their loved ones.
This beautiful home is maintained by a caring group of St. Cloud Hospital volunteers and staff, who are available to assist guests with their hospitality needs.
Gorecki Guest House is a proud member of the Healthcare Hospitality Network (HHN).
- 12 guest rooms – 10 rooms with 2 twin beds and 2 rooms with 1 queen bed.

- Kitchen and dining rooms to accommodate family meals – a comfortable place to visit with family and other guests.

Support the Gorecki Guest House
St. Cloud Hospital Gorecki Guest House needs your financial support. We are a home away from home in St. Cloud for patients and their families during a time of medical crisis or serious illness. In 2013, 1,961 patients and their families stayed at the Guest House. The modest room rate is supplemented by gifts from generous benefactors to keep our guests’ stays affordable and comfortable.
Generous donors have given more than $1.5 million toward our $2.5 million goal to build and endow the house.
The operating endowment will help maintain the house and keep room rates affordable.
While the guest fee per night helps defray some of our operating costs, a significant portion of the operational budget is met by donations. The comfort we provide not only impacts those staying at the house, but helps patients in the hospital feel at ease knowing their family members are close by in a secure, welcoming environment.
Please join us with a gift to the guest house. Your gift will help provide an open door, a place of rest, for people traveling long distances to be close to the people they love.
A gift of any amount is important and greatly appreciated. You may donate online or call CentraCare Health Foundation at 320-240-2810.
