building richmond's first hospice house

We’re building the Richmond area’s first-ever Community Hospice House, and you can be a part of it. We’re in the midst of raising funds to build a comforting, home-like facility in the Bon Air neighborhood to provide a place of peace and rest for those near the end of life.

The Community Hospice House initiative is grounded in Bon Secours Richmond’s deep commitment to hospice care — a founding element of the ministry of the Sisters of Bon Secours that began in 1824.

The Hospice House, a warm and inviting 16-bed facility, is being built for the entire community and will be shared by all Richmond-area health systems and physicians. The goal is for the community at large and the medical community to come together — with the sole purpose of providing exceptional end-of-life care.

“It will be a place for the community and of the community — a place without barriers and outside the competitive health care marketplace,” said Sister Vicky Segura, who cares for hospice and palliative care patients and their families.

There is a need for a hospice house in this community and the time is right. The notion of a hospice house is embraced by patients and families across Richmond.
