Our physicians understand the importance of the Guest House

Gary R. Zeevi, MD, FACC, Medical Director, Bon Secours Advanced Heart Failure Center and LVAD Program

“I am pleased to say that Bon Secours continues to offer state-of-the-art care and technology in many fields. As our programs grow, we are able to reach patients from a far wider geographic area. Many of these advanced therapies require extended stays for the families as well as the patients. The Guest House Program may provide the only way these families can stay, support, and nurture their loved one during their treatment.”

Bonita Makdad, MD, Medical Director, Bon Secours Neonatology Program

“The number of babies born early to out-of-town families is rising. Many of these families live in rural areas and must travel at least two hours to visit their babies in Richmond. These mothers and fathers are so vulnerable and worried. The Guest House provides an invaluable service to these families.”
