Our Bon Secours Mission
Our Mission extends the compassionate ministry of Jesus by improving the health and well-being of our communities and brings good help to those in need, especially people who are poor, dying and underserved.
Our Mission Lives in us
Our Mission drives everything we do at Bon Secours. From our health care professionals, to our support staff, everyone in our facilities believes in our commitment to our ministry. As part of our team, your work will help us continue to bring this Mission to life.
Our Vision, inspired by God's hope for the world, is that we will be a ministry where associates want to work, clinicians want to practice, people seek wellness and communities thrive.
Compassion - We commit to accompanying those we serve with mercy and tenderness, recognizing that "being with" is as important as "doing for".
Human dignity - We commit to upholding the sacredness of life and being respectful and inclusive of everyone.
Integrity - We commit to acting ethically and modeling right relationships in all of our individual and organizational encounters.
Service - We commit to providing the highest quality in every dimension of our ministry.
Stewardship - We commit to promoting the responsible use of all human and financial resources, including Earth itself.
Supporting Our Community
Compassion and service are a huge part of who we are and the work we do at Bon Secours. Through a myriad of internal, local and nationally based partnerships we are extending Jesus healing ministry to all.
Building a healthy community
In each of our facilities, we have created programs that extend beyond the everyday. While they vary regionally, our programs are designed to support healthy habits before, during and after a visit to any of our locations. These programs include, but are not limited to:
- Advocate for health care legislation
- Encourage healthy choices
- Increase access to care
- Prevent chronic disease
- Promote healthy births
- Provide care to communities of color
- Provide support for opioid addiction
- Support mental health
Healing Our Communities
We take a holistic approach to improving our communities. That’s why we partner with programs in each of our regions to build, impact, and support our communities every day. These initiatives include, but are not limited to:
- Affordable housing
- Community gardens
- Crime reduction
- Farmers markets
- Health education
- Stopping human trafficking
- Transportation access
- Wigs for cancer patients
While we offer our expertise to established and developing programs, we also make sure that we can help our communities in every way possible. Through our charitable giving, we support organizations that are already doing the work our regions need and help them make an even greater impact. Every day, we give nearly $2 million back to the communities we serve. That adds up to a yearly giving total of over $600 million. We are proud of our contributions to each of the organizations we help, and we are excited to continue our giving traditions.
Established 150 years ago by congregations of women religious, Bon Secours has been continually enhancing the way that health care is delivered, promoting new levels of health care safety, quality and cost effectiveness. Our history began in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1919 when the Sisters of Bon Secours established their first hospital. Their goal was to provide quality care to all, especially the poor, sick and dying.
Continuing to focus on our Mission, the Bon Secours network expanded into six states, with 43 hospitals and over 1,000 care sites. On September 1, 2018, Bon Secours Health System and Mercy Health combined to become the United States’ fifth-largest Catholic health care ministry and one of the nation’s 20 largest health care systems. Together, our shared Catholic heritage is helping us lead the way to the future of care.
