The Women of St. Francis

Women make approximately 80% percent of the healthcare decisions for their families, and we are proud to sponsor a group of ladies who are determined to be informed, proactive and generous about healthcare.

Over 125 women from the community have joined the Women of St. Francis, a philanthropic group of ladies from the community. The ladies' activities include:

  • Quarterly luncheons with physicians featuring topics specific to women's health issues
  • Creating the annual Pearls & Pumps event to support the Pearlie Harris Breast Center
  • Giving over $52,000 to support women's and children's programs at Bon Secours St. Francis in the past 4 years

In their annual grants meeting, the Women of St. Francis select a need at Bon Secours St. Francis to support using their annual membership dues. The ladies have expressed this mission statement: "The purpose of the Women of St. Francis is to use our God-given talents and resources as we educate the community and enhance the quality of women's health."
