Giving to bon secours mary immaculate hospital
We are blessed in that we have a rich, long history, not only with the Sisters of Bon Secours, but with the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters who came to our community in the 1950s. The Bernardine Franciscan Sisters are rooted in a very strong educational background, while the Sisters of Bon Secours have a rich health care tradition. It’s a nice blending for us — the focus on health care, but also on education for our community. We do a lot of community outreach through the Community Education and Health Resource Center that our Foundation helped to build.
I grew up in a family that had a very strong commitment to the community in which we lived, and I learned very early that you always get more than you give. It’s important to me and for our community to have good quality health care available. Giving to Mary Immaculate helps to keep those resources alive in our community.
CEO, Mary Immaculate Hospital
Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital brings together two orders of Sisters to provide exceptional health care and education to provide the only faith-based hospital setting on the Peninsula. The Bernardine Franciscan Sisters, who founded Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital in 1952, brought with them a tradition of valuing education.
When the Sisters of Bon Secours partnered with the hospital in 1996, they came with a history in health care dating back to 1824. Their very name, Bon Secours, means “good help” in French and has provided the guiding mission for everyone who works at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate — to be Good Help to Those in Need®.
Bon Secours Mary Immaculate employees strive to provide comprehensive and personalized care with attention to treating the whole person physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Their commitment allows the hospital to make a difference to the members of the Peninsula community.
This work is supported by the Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Foundation. Through the generosity of our donors, the Foundation allows Bon Secours Mary Immaculate to offer services to the community that might not otherwise be possible.
