Local Advocacy

As a ministry of the Church, Catholic health care providers have a strong commitment to being a voice for the voiceless.  The elderly we serve are an important, special needs population whose voice must be heard as they are often the ones most affected by budget cuts and scaled down services.  

At Bon Secours St. Petersburg we actively engage in the political process on behalf of those for whom we care and those with whom we care.  All legislation that affects abundance of life for seniors in our community ultimately affects the lives of caregivers.  We recognize the need to leverage the power of our residents, our employees and all people of faith and goodwill to speak loudly on behalf of justice for seniors.  The decline in resources allocated to the care of those most  vulnerable must always be met with constructive opposition if we are to fulfill our mission to be Good Help To Those in Need.®
