Studies have shown that diversity in teams, such as female executive leaders, can produce better outcomes for organizations. These outcomes include more innovation, more creative solutions to intractable problems and, ultimately, better financial results.
Sunday, March 8 marks International Women’s Day — a day to recognize and celebrate women’s economic, cultural, political and social achievements, and inspire others to continue to promote gender equality.
The Sisters of Bon Secours were a strong group of religious women. They broke barriers for women in the 1800s by working together to form a Catholic health system to provide good help to the poor, sick, vulnerable and underserved.
Much like our founding Sisters, Bon Secours Hampton Roads is currently led by a strong group of women. In fact, the Bon Secours Hampton Roads executive leadership team is the first and only all-female market leadership team in our ministry. Bon Secours Hampton Roads spans four hospitals and multiple sites of patient care across southeastern Virginia.
The members of the Bon Secours Hampton Roads executive leadership team include:

Bon Secours is proud to be tackling barriers and leveraging powerful potential with its women leaders.
It’s no secret that empowered women empower women. Our Hampton Roads leaders exemplify this in everything they do for our facilities and associates, patients, and communities.
On International Women’s Day and every day, Bon Secours celebrates the equality and accomplishments of women.
