QUINCY — The ceremonial ribbon will be cut and a public open house held at the recently built Teresa Adams House at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6. The open house will last until 2 p.m.

The house will offer discounted daytime and overnight accommodations for patients and their families seeking healthcare in the Quincy area from any provider. It will soon replace the 70-year-old Quincy Hospitality House, which has welcomed more than 14,000 guests from across the United States and internationally since opening in 1998.

The Teresa Adams House is at 630 N. 11th, just north of the SIU Medicine Center for Family Medicine and across the street from the Blessing Hospital Moorman Pavilion.

The new structure is named in memory of Teresa Adams, known in the Quincy area for her exceptional hospitality and warm and welcoming personality. Adams lost a 12-year battle with cancer in 2019 and understood the importance of “home” and “comfort” in the process of receiving healthcare.

The Teresa Adams House is ADA compliant with significantly more space than the Quincy Hospitality House, including eight bedrooms with private baths, gathering and conference spaces, laundry facilities and a snack area all on one level.

Fundraising began two years ago for construction of the Teresa Adams House, with a total of $2.3 million donated. The project design team at Architechnics provided an in-kind donation as part of their architectural & engineering services.
