History of our Ministry

Bon Secours Mercy Health’s Mission and values come to us from the compassionate ministries established more than 150 years ago by congregations of women religious. It is our commitment to continuing their legacies that fuels our passion to be of service to all who need our care and help, especially the poor, underserved and dying. Their dedication to excellence and service drives us to continually enhance the way that health care is delivered, promoting new levels of health care safety, quality and cost effectiveness. Our physicians, nurses and health care givers embrace the calling entrusted to them, providing compassionate healing and service as modeled by our foundresses.
