For over 17 years, the Beacon House has been a home away from home for patients and families traveling to Marquette for specialty medical care.
Now, the hospital is moving over 15 blocks away, and to best meet the needs of out of the area patients and families we plan to build a new Beacon House right next door to the new UP Health System LifePoint Hospital.
We have sold the “old” Beacon House and are excited to create a wonderful new lodging facility to provide all the warmth and comforts that our guests need during difficult times.
The new Steve Mariucci Family Beacon House fundraising campaign is underway. When we reach out $3 million goal, we’ll be able to build Phase 1 of the new hospitality house with the first 20 guest rooms. The projected date to open is early next year.
In the meantime, we are still assisting families through our Beacon House “Operation Overnight” program. Travel Marquette has provided us with discounted hotels and motels for verified medical situations.
If you need assistance with lodging, please call us at 906-225-7100.
Our new administrative and fundraising office is now located in the Upper Peninsula Medical Center. UPMC stockholders have generously donated it to help families find safe, affordable lodging during this transition period.

Our plans for the new Steve Mariucci Family Beacon House include you!
For 16 years, Beacon House on Third St. in Marquette has been a home away from home for patients and their families receiving critical medical care at UPHS. The hospital is moving. To continue our mission as the U.P.’s only hospitality house, we need a new facility. Learn more about our plans.
Our new house will be designed to be a Hospitality House, from the ground up.
Our floor plan will be welcoming to all families. Using U.P. contractors and donated services, we hope to be able to start building as close to the opening of UPHS-Marquette in 2018. A grass-roots campaign “Legacy of Love” includes every U.P. community coming together.
