Bon Secours Health System is a Roman Catholic health care organization. Sponsored by the Bon Secours Ministries, it is home to about 20 hospitals with some 4,400 licensed acute care beds. First founded in 1919, the organization's facilities are in six states in the eastern US, from New York to Florida. In addition to its acute care hospitals, the not-for-profit health care system operates a psychiatric hospital, numerous nursing homes and assisted-living facilities, as well as hospices and home health care agencies. Its Global Ministry Initiative provides outreach for health care and social services in developing countries, particularly Haiti, Peru, and South Africa.

Geographic Reach

Headquartered in Marriottsville, Maryland, the system has hospitals in Kentucky, Maryland, New York, South Carolina, and Virginia and long-term care facilities in Florida, New York, and Virginia.

Sales and Marketing

In fiscal 2014 (ended August), Medicare and Medicaid payments accounted for 35% of total net patient revenue.

Financial Performance

Revenue increased 3% to $3.5 billion in fiscal 2014 (ended August) as net patient service revenues increased. Despite that growth, higher operating costs led to a decline in net income, which fell 57% to $143.5 million.

Cash flow from operations slipped 6% to $190.4 million that year as a result of the lower net income, as well as a change in working capital.


Bon Secours plans to continue to grow its operations in existing and new communities, targeting expansion in ambulatory care, elderly services, and home health and hospice. The health system has opened several new ambulatory care centers in existing service territories and it is conducting renovation and expansion efforts at some of its hospital facilities.

Bon Secours has also initiated information technology restructuring efforts; it has developed a new clinical information management system (electronic medical records), ConnectCare, which is being implemented at its facilities in gradual stages.
