What does it mean to be a mission-focused organization?

A mission-focused organization fulfills an officially stated, established mission. Ours is to further the mission of the Bon Secours Charity Health System - to give Good Help to Those in Need®.

Our mission began in 1824, with 12 nuns in Paris, France. The first Sisters of Bon Secours (which means "good help" in French) believed that through compassion and generosity, they could help make the world better. Today, the staff, volunteers, board members and supporters of the Foundations of Bon Secours Charity Health System continue to share that belief.
