welcome to Your Good Help Magazine
Richmond Community is here for you
Richmond. For those of us who love this town, the name “Richmond” evokes images of
friends, family, grace and comfort. It seems obvious that a hospital
named Richmond Community would naturally exude hospitality and
compassion. Our hospital has operated in Richmond for more than 100 years and is a proud member of the Bon Secours Richmond Health System
family, which includes St. Mary’s Hospital, Memorial Regional Medical
Center and St. Francis Medical Center. “Good help to those in need” is
our mission statement, and we take it very seriously. We are here to
serve you and your loved ones in a community where hope and faith
As your neighborhood hospital, we are eager to get to know you and offer ways to help prevent illness and injury. With this inaugural issue of Your Good Help, we bring you the latest information on health and wellness. Our employees and physicians live in your neighborhood and deliver world-class personal service blanketed in respect, justice and quality.
Just in case, we offer a “no wait” Emergency Department. You never know when the unexpected will occur, but know that Richmond Community is here for you. We also are a certified stroke center and are ready to treat patients with stroke symptoms. Remember — when a stroke occurs, minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Certain treatments can be effective if they are administered within three hours of the onset of stroke.
Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in the United States. Richmond Community has invested in advanced technology for early detection and diagnosis. Same-day appointments are available. And why wait to get a doctor when you have an emergency? Choose a doctor now when you have the time. At Bon Secours Richmond, we want to be your medical home.
Enjoy this magazine and please share it with family and friends. As sure as the leaves will turn scarlet and adorn the streets of Church Hill, Richmond Community is here for you.
