1 SUMMER 2012 THE SPIRIT From the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation giving makes good happen. Every Woman s Life Program Makes Big Impact Cancer survivor says thank you for donor-supported programs Registered nurse, registered yoga teacher and cancer survivor Liz Selden of inlight yoga (right) works with patient Kathleen Chancey in Bon Secours Foundation-supported classes. I came to Bon Secours through its Every Woman s Life Program, which offers free screenings to people without insurance, said Chancey, who like many independent contractors, could not afford insurance. there are so many hardworking people just like me who can t quite afford private insurance. Chancey discovered many Bon Secours donor-supported programs to aid her healing, including cancer support groups, yoga, art and meditation. The yoga has been a really good program for me because it has helped me realize that I need to be patient in my recovery, patient with myself and just accept where I am at the moment, she said. Kathleen Chancey will never forget the day she found out she had uterine cancer and an ovarian cyst. I felt numb. It was like a nightmare, she said. Chancey, who is now cancer-free and back at work as a court reporter, said Bon Secours donor-supported programs turned her nightmare into a story of hope and recovery. Just three months before learning she had cancer, Chancey had applied to Bon Secours financial aid program. It helps patients who earn too much to qualify for many other programs, but find that private insurance is out of reach. I don t know how I would have received treatment for my cancer without these programs, said Chancey. Financial support of these programs is so important because Chancey wants donors to know that their support has a profound impact on patients and their families. When I was asked if I was willing to share my story, I didn t hesitate I really feel like the Bon Secours programs saved my life and I don t know how to say thank you enough. Art on Wheels Helps Patients, Families The arts are a really powerful tool for healing, said Andrea Orlosky, co-founder of Art on Wheels, a nonprofit organization that brings art programming to Bon Secours cancer patients at two Richmond-area locations. When patients are going through a really challenging time, it can be extremely rewarding for them to be with other people who are in similar circumstances. There are also stress-relieving properties that are very therapeutic. Cancer patient Kathleen Chancey knows firsthand how valuable art can be during recovery. It gives me a time to just forget about the cancer, said Chancey. This and other healing programs have made a big difference in my recovery. Orlosky said donor support is vital to the program. Art on Wheels Co-Founder Kevin Orlosky assists patient Kathleen Chancey in silk painting. It is really important for donors to know that their donation makes a big impact, changing the lives of participants by allowing them to have a tremendously positive experience.

3 SUMMER 2012 Bon Secours Briefs Community Leaders in Grand Rounds Program We developed this program so our community leaders could be better informed of the issues and have a greater understanding of what s happening in the health-care debate, health-care reform and the future of health care, said Jim Dunn, vice president for Advocacy and Community Affairs at Bon Secours Virginia. Each speaker brought great insight and perspective to an issue very much at the forefront of the challenges we face daily as business leaders. Participant Mark Van Sumeren of Owens & Minor said the speakers shared great insight and perspective. Many Richmond-area leaders are learning firsthand about health-care issues from the field s leading experts, thanks to a program from Bon Secours. Grand Rounds for Community Leaders, which launched in October 2010, is a series of educational conversations among business leaders, elected officials and health-care experts. Each fall, a new group of 25 to 30 leaders begin the one-year program, which meets four times on issues driving health care, quality of life and healthy communities. In addition to looking at big-picture topics, participants have learned about more specific topics such as cardiology innovations and palliative care. The next Grand Rounds session, scheduled to begin this fall, will include a presentation on corporate wellness, said Dunn. Bon Secours delivered a timely and highly relevant series, said Mark Van Sumeren, senior vice president of Owens & Minor, who completed the course in We created the Grand Rounds program to educate business and civic leaders about health-care issues. Sharing information on emerging health-care topics is one more way we re working to build a healthier community. -Jim Dunn, vice president for Advocacy and Community Affairs at Bon Secours Virginia Nurse Receives Francine Barr Scholarship Congratulations to labor and delivery nurse Jenni Parrish, this year s Francine Barr Endowed Scholarship Fund winner. Friends, family and colleagues of Barr, vice president/chief nursing executive, began a scholarship fund to honor her commitment to quality nurses and nursing education. Each year the scholarship is awarded to a Bon Secours St. Mary s Hospital nurse who has been with the health system for at least two years and is enrolled in a degree program for a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science or a doctorate degree in nursing. St. Mary s Hospital CEO Toni Ardabell, (left) and Francine Barr, vice president/chief nursing executive, (right) congratulate Jenni Parrish on winning the Francine Barr Scholarship. I was excited and honored to receive the Francine Barr Scholarship. I plan to use it toward my graduate work at VCU. I am looking forward to beginning the Women s Health Nurse Practitioner program in August. -Jenni Parrish, scholarship winner THE SPIRIT 3

4 THE SPIRIT Thank You, Volunteers Your giving makes good happen Holding the hand of a dying man. Caring for our most vulnerable neighbors through a mobile free clinic. By sharing time, resources and passion, Bon Secours Richmond volunteers are building a healthier community. If we calculated the value of their hours by merely using the Virginia minimum wage, our volunteers donated more than $1.7 million of time last year. But many volunteers have specialized duties that would cost much more than minimum wage, so our volunteers direct contribution of time is worth far more than we can calculate. Sharing Skills: Pet, art and music therapists volunteer to help hospice and cancer patients. Other volunteers support fundraising races and educational events to fight obesity, to support neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) and nursing education. Volunteers work with the nonprofit Tricycle Gardens to create and maintain our Memorial Regional Medical Center s gardens, which provide healing environments for patients and nutritious, local food for the hospital. Business leaders help build strategic plans and create partnerships with the corporate community. Talented artists recently donated their time to create a mural to help provide a comforting environment for child crime victims while our forensic nurses care for them. From transporting patients, to providing directions and information, to visiting our patients and offering compassion, volunteers play a vital role in helping our nurses and doctors care for the whole person - body, mind and spirit. Financial Support: Examples of volunteers financial gifts include: St. Mary s volunteers pledged the first large donation $300,000 to help build a guest house for out-of-town families to stay when a loved one is at St. Mary s Hospital. Memorial Regional s volunteers gave $75,000 for a community garden at the hospital and pledged an additional $75,000 for renovations in the courtyard and chapel. The St. Francis Volunteer Fund provided more than $85,000 last year to purchase medical equipment, including equipment to help EMS transmit critical clinical information. We applaud Bon Secours volunteers Spirit of Giving. We appreciate the way you serve, the way you give and the way you inspire others! Volunteers Alicia Ordona, Tequila Suggs, Hattie Bon Secours four Richmond-area hospitals. THE SPIRIT 4

5 SUMMER 2012 What We Hear: Our volunteers impact in the community. Invaluable community service It would be absolutely impossible to serve the community in the way we do without these beautiful volunteers. -Don Coleman, East End Fellowship co-pastor, Richmond School Board member and Richmond Community Hospital Advisory Board member A little time makes a big impact When your whole world is decimated with a disease like this, it s wonderful to know that someone cares... people don t realize when they give just a little of their time how much it can mean. -Barbara P., former Bon Secours Safe Landings patient, reflects on volunteers compassionate care Compassionate care at one of life s most tender moments Hospice volunteers are a vital part of helping patients and families fulfill their last wishes... We couldn t do it without them. -Madelyn Williams, Bon Secours Hospice, director of operations Building trust when it s just been broken: supporting sexual and physical abuse victims Bon Secours volunteers are fantastic. What they do is they take on-call shifts. When they get a call, they literally have to drop everything and go to the ER within just 45 minutes. They are immediately dropped into an emergency situation. It takes a really special and unique type of person. -Patty Hall, programs director, Hanover Safe Place, which partners with Bon Secours in helping abuse victims Davis, Ann Marshall each represent one of Total number of volunteers: 1,736 Total 2011 hours: 240,618 Monetary value of service: More than $1.7 million THE SPIRIT 5

6 THE SPIRIT Noah s Children Supporters Enjoy Gala Jenna Bush Hager shares a smile with a Noah s Children patient. No one wants to contemplate the death of a child, but the unthinkable does happen, and when it does, a family s focus needs to be on celebrating their child s life, not worrying about how they re going to obtain pain medication, a new wheelchair, or in-home nursing care. Noah s Children is the only organization of its kind in Central Virginia that provides these and other resources for families of sick children. -Dr. Kelly Stuart, a neonatologist and Noah s Children auction committee co-chair Noah s Children Founder and Medical Director Dr. Bob Archuleta (right) with Jenna Bush Hager and her husband Henry Hager. Volunteers and members of the host committee with keynote speaker Jenna Bush Hager. Nearly 400 people attended this spring s Noah s Children fundraising gala, forty one, raising more than $200,000 to go directly to families under the care of Central Virginia s only pediatric hospice and palliative care program. The event began with a silent auction showcasing the artistic talents of local students and included goods and services from local businesses. Keynote speaker Jenna Bush Hager and the energetic live auction delighted audience members. Participants mingled, danced and celebrated well into the evening.

7 SUMMER 2012 Raffle Makes Golf Dream Come True David Clelland s bucket list is one under. He s played Pebble Beach. In fact, he played it twice. For two years running, Clelland, a senior vice president at Union First Market Bank, has won the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation s golf trip of a lifetime raffle. He s hoping for a three-peat this year. It is amazing to stand on the historic 18th tee at Pebble Beach and to play a bucket-list golf course. While I was there, I thought, I paid $100 for a raffle ticket for this, but many of my playing partners paid almost $20,000 for the same opportunity, said Clelland. I plan to buy more tickets this year to help Care-A-Van, which is a wonderful cause benefiting many people who lack access to medical care. The side benefit of a trip to Pebble Beach is pretty good, too. You, too, could find yourself standing where Clelland said he stood, with waves crashing near him, thinking, I m on the 18th at Pebble Beach. For more information or to purchase raffle tickets, visit bsrgolf. bonsecoursevents.com David Clelland, left, played Pebble Beach with his friend Dave Memo, thanks to his $100 winning raffle ticket. Clelland said other golfers earned their trips through silent auctions after bidding up to $20,000. THE SPIRIT 7 Driving Improvements in Community s Health Golf tournament to benefit Bon Secours mobile clinics What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive. -Golfer Arnold Palmer, known supporter of women s and children s health & prostate cancer care Just as Arnold Palmer, the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation is offering Richmond-area golfers an opportunity to connect their love of the links with improving the health of others at its fall 2012 charity golf tournament. At 12:30 p.m. Sept. 24, 48 teams will tee off, shotgun style, at the Country Club of Virginia s James River and Tuckahoe Creek courses. All money raised will support the Bon Secours Virginia Care- A-Vans, a fleet of mobile health clinics that provide free health care for the area s most needy. An awards ceremony will follow the end of play. Golfers will have the chance to win a golf trip of a lifetime to participate in the 2012 Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship in Pebble Beach, Calif., thanks to Lexus of Richmond that donated the tickets. Additional prizes include a new Apple ipad and a $300 gas card. To find out how you can participate, contact Peggy Wilson at or or visit: Charity Golf Tournament 12:30 p.m. Sept. 24 Country Club of Virginia s James River and Tuckahoe Creek courses Call Bruce James and Steven Contomanolis of Enterprise Rent-A-Car present Bon Secours Dr. Janet Eddy and Stephen Huebner with a $1,500 donation for the Care-A-Vans. We know firsthand how expensive it is to maintain vehicles that s our business. That s one reason we are supporting the Care-A-Van. Coming to a Care-A-Van stop and seeing the tremendous line of people waiting for care is very moving. We commend Bon Secours for what it is doing in the community. -Bruce James of Enterprise Rent-A-Car We rely on donor support, so we can get to the neighborhoods where people need us most, especially since we serve many patients who have no transportation. Mobile health care is particularly expensive because we not only have to pay for the medical equipment, supplies and staff, but we also have to pay for vehicle maintenance. -Dr. Janet Eddy, Bon Secours Care-A-Van

8 BON SECOURS RICHMOND HEALTH CARE FOUNDATION NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION U.S.Postage PAID RICHMOND, VA PERMIT # Bremo Road, Suite 305 Richmond, Virginia (804) Good Help to Those in Need THE SPIRIT SUMMER 2012 Celebrating Our Volunteers them a better place for all. From our founding Sisters to today, the Bon Secours ministry has always offered compassionate care in partnership with our community. Our volunteers exemplify the importance of this partnership and the difference that can be made when we share our time, talent and resources. Our extraordinary volunteers have given thousands of hours and dollars to transform our communities, making I am proud that because of our volunteers and our employees, Bon Secours is a recognized leader in transforming the health and well-being of our region. (See our feature story Thank You, Volunteers on pages 4 and 5.) At the same time, I have learned that when I volunteer, I am also changed. When I become involved in volunteer efforts, I experience the joy of learning about new people and new points of view. Community service challenges the way I think. My work with Tricycle Gardens, a nonprofit bringing agriculture, nutrition education and healthy-food access to urban Richmond, has changed the way I think about food. I now have a deeper understanding of the connection between good food and good public health. My story is just one small part of our broader Bon Secours community. Every day, our volunteers and employees share their talents, knowledge and passion, making our community healthier and stronger. We are grateful to our volunteers for all they do. Truly, their giving has made good happen! Thank you, Dougal Hewitt, senior vice president, Mission Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation Board member BON SECOURS RICHMOND HEALTH CARE FOUNDATION
