Cooperating for Compassionate Care

When like missions meet, ministries multiply.

That’s the product of marrying St. Joseph’s Villa, a nonprofit that serves more than 500 families daily, and the Bon Secours Richmond Health System. 

“The ideal partner is an organization with a similar mission,” said Kathleen Burke Barrett, CEO of St. Joseph’s Villa. 

“Bon Secours’ ministry of compassionate health care is a perfect fit to our mission of
caring for children with special needs and their families.”                                                     

It all started with Bon Secours having its Care-A-Van mobile health clinic stop at St. Joseph’s Villa. When need outpaced supply, Bon Secours established an onsite clinic, which now sees nearly 6,000 patient visits per year.

The clinic allows Bon Secours to provide even more good help to the community. It gives St. Joseph’s Villa another way to serve its children and families, who come from 30 counties throughout Virginia. 

“With the pressures on health systems today, it says a lot about Bon Secours that they would voluntarily serve the community by supporting our program,” said Barrett, who is a Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation Board member.

“I feel good knowing we have a place here for our children and families to go and knowing that they will be getting Bon Secours’ top-notch care.”
