In 1966, Bon Secours expanded its mission to provide good help to those in need with the opening of St. Mary’s Hospital in Richmond, VA. In 1995, Richmond Community Hospital joined the Bon Secours Health System, and in 1998, Memorial Regional Medical Center began serving in the Hanover community. Bon Secours further expanded in 2005, adding its 4th hospital in the Greater Richmond area, when St. Francis Medical Center opened.Today the Catholic healthcare system is one of the area’s largest employers, nationally recognized by AARP and Working Mother magazine. In addition to the four hospitals, Bon Secours Richmond includes a college of nursing, a school of medical imaging, and two family practice residency programs. True to the Sisters’ original mission of a comprehensive healing ministry. Bon Secours Richmond is active in community outreach health programs and services.
