Located along the beautiful bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River in Dubuque, Iowa, Mount Carmel is the spiritual home of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary — the “heart” where most BVM Sisters first entered the community.

Presently, it is home to our retired sisters who are in need of different levels of care ranging from 24-hour specialized care and skilled nursing to assisted and independent living.  Beginning in April 2020, the care of our retired sisters will transition to our new senior living community Mount Carmel Bluffs, a shared ministry of the Sisters of Charity, BVM and Presbyterian Homes & Services. If you are looking for employment at Mount Carmel Bluffs, please visit for a current list of available positions.

Mount Carmel is also the administrative headquarters of the Sisters of Charity, BVM.
