Caring for Our Nurses: Moving Nursing Forward.
"A message from Jill Kennedy, Chief Nurse Executive and VP of Patient Care"
Destination Excellence is our nursing quest for providing the best patient care for our community. Our caring and compassionate nurses are committed to delivering expert patient care and were recognized nationally by Health Grades with the 2007-2008 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence. Memorial Regional nurses are committed to the health of the community outside our hospital walls. Participation in health fairs, community seminars, disaster planning and volunteer community care through the Bon Secours Care-a-Van are a part of our mission. Let us know how we can assist in your next community event. Please feel free to call us at 804/764-7565. Taking care of our staff is a top priority so they can take the best care of our patients. We provide flexible schedules, on-site day care and innovative programs for our working parents. Our efforts have been recognized nationally. For nine years Bon Secours Richmond has been recognized by Working Mother Magazine as one of the top 100 family-friendly companies. Also, AARP has listed us as a top company for workers over the age of fifty. As the Chief Nurse Executive of Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center, I am committed to the future of nursing at Memorial. A critical component of our future is ensuring an adequate supply of highly trained and dedicated health care providers in our community. Through our school of nursing, middle school medical explorer's camp program, and public relations campaign, Bon Secours Memorial is at the forefront of promoting the profession of nursing in the Richmond community. We are your community hospital and we are here for you.
