Healthy Communities Initiative
Bon Secours Health System is committed to creating communities of health, hope and well-being. This commitment is founded in our Catholic social tradition, which teaches us that each person is not only sacred but also social. How we organize our society – in terms of economics and politics – directly affects the capacity of a person to grow and develop. There are many things that need to come together to create a healthy community, including access to quality health care, functional and affordable housing, education, employment, public safety, and recreational and cultural opportunities.
Bon Secours is developing long-term, collaborative relationships with the people who live and work in selected neighborhoods in the communities we serve and with other local organizations so that together we can identify and address priorities to improve the quality of life and health.
