New Childrens Hospital of Richmond Partnership

The collaboration between Bon Secours and Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU will advance children’s health care in our communities. Our teams have been providing expert and compassionate care to children and families for decades. Now we are sharing our unique strengths with one another to ultimately improve the health of children in our community and beyond. Our organizations will remain independent, and the collaboration does not entail the creation of a new legal entity.




Work groups have been formed to address three major areas of focus: access, coordination and quality.
