Mission Statement

Bon Secours Hampton Roads

Rooted in our Catholic Health Ministry, we will be known as the leading health care system in providing compassionate and innovative care for the whole person. Through our employees and in collaboration with our physicians and other partners, we will seek to improve the health of our community


Bon Secours Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregiver. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values, and wishes.

Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, homemakers, hospice aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and others, Bon Secours Hospice provides palliative care in the home, short-term inpatient services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services, and bereavement support. Services will be equitably distributed to a medically and financially diversified group of patients in a cost-effective manner which ensures adherence to the goals of Bon Secours Hospice and the maintenance of the financial solvency of the organization.

Hospice affirms life.

Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice exists in the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community, patients and family/caregivers will be free to attain a degree of mental preparation for death that is satisfying to them.

I have never volunteered for any other organization that so heartily values their volunteers!

Bon Secours Hospice offers its volunteers comprehensive training. Each month there are numerous in-service events/trainings as well as networking activites with other Hospice volunteers. The amount of resources, support and appreciation that Bon Secours gives to the Hospice volunteers is beyond anything that I expected as a volunteer.

The people you work with are dedicated to what they do and are extremely appreciative of volunteers. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to answer any questions you may have.
