OPINION: Time to Deliver
10/16/2021 3:00am

Bon Secours needs to deliver on its promise to East End residents. Bon Secours is on a spending spree in Richmond but only at its hospitals in white, affluent neighborhoods. Meanwhile, Bon Secours is shirking its long-standing contractual obligations to develop new medical facilities in Richmonds struggling, urban East End. Bon Secours signed a contract on July 8, 2013, with the city of Richmond Economic Development Authority in which Bon Secours agreed to build a 25,000-square-foot, $7.5 million medical office building at or near its East End Richmond Community Hospital.The contract also called for Bon Secours to hire 75 new full-time employees at its East End facilities with a payroll of no less than $6.7 million, which equates to an average salary of $89,333 per full-time equivalent worker. In exchange for these promises, Richmond granted Bon Secours a 100-year lease of the very valuable Westhampton School site adjacent to the Bon Secours St. Marys Hospital at an initial annual rent of only $5,000. Eight years later, Bon Secours has built nothing in the East End, despite the small cost of such a facility relative to its other recent area expenditures and has hired few if any of the promised new East End employees.During that same eight years, Bon Secours has spent hundreds of millions of dollars expanding and improving its suburban Richmond hospitals. In fact, in just the past two years, Bon Secours has announced a $50 million expansion and a $34 million operating room upgrade at its Memorial Regional Medical Center in Hanover County, a $119 million expansion of its St. Francis Medical Center in Chesterfield County, and a new $30 million, free-standing 24,000-square-foot emergency-room in Chester. And the Westhampton School site leased to Bon Secours has now been developed with hundreds of new apartments and new office facilities. Whats really going on here Zip code data from the U.S. Census Bureau tells the story. For the code in which Bon Secours St. Francis is located, the population is 79.2 white and the yearly median family income is $89,851. By contrast, in the Bon Secours Richmond Community Hospital ZIP code, the population is only 17.9 white and the median family income is $51,528 almost $40,000 less than for St. Francis. The numbers are similar for the ZIP codes of Bon Secourss Hanover facility 91 white, $79,692 median income and St. Marys Hospital 88 white, $68,024 median income. See the American Community Survey at census.gov for that information. And people in the East End near Richmond Community Hospital live shorter lives. Average life expectancy at birth is 63 to 68 years for people who live in the Richmond Community Hospital area. Average life expectancy at birth is 77 to 79 years for those who live near St. Francis and about the same for those living near Memorial Regional and St. Marys. Read the 2016 report from Virginia Commonwealth Universitys Center on Society and Health: societyhealth.vcu.edu/work/the-projects/mapping-life-expectancy.html.As these numbers show, Bon Secours is spending money in high-income areas that are largely white. And Bon Secours is not spending money and doesnt want to spend money at the Bon Secours hospital that is in a less affluent part of town with a small white population and lower life expectancies. The stated mission of Bon Secours Health is to extend the compassionate ministry of Jesus by improving the health and well-being of our communities and bring good help to those in need, especially people who are poor, dying and underserved emphasis added. Really If Bon Secours was truly focused on the poor, dying and underserved wouldnt it make sense for Bon Secours to put its efforts and its money in the East End community where poverty is highest and life expectancy is the lowest, rather than in those high-income suburban communities where life expectancies are already 10 to 15 years higher than in the East EndBon Secours announced last year that the new emergency room facility it was building in Chester, a project almost the same size as the promised East End office building, would be completed in only two years. If Bon Secours had built the promised East End project in two years, then that project would have been completed in 2015. In the six years from 2015 until today, $40.2 million of new salary and wages would have poured into the East End. That money would have been spent on housing and clothes and food and those expenditures would have created even more new East End jobs and income as a result. But of course, none of that happened. Instead, Bon Secours put its money in Richmonds richer, whiter hospitals. Bon Secours, when will you fulfill your charitable purpose to bring help to the poor and underserved and perform your contractual obligations to the City of Richmond and Richmonds East End When will you spend the paltry $7.5 million you committed to spend in the East End and hire the promised 75 new employees instead of just pouring money into your suburban locations At Bon Secours, the moneychangers in the temple seem to have driven out the compassionate ministry of Jesus.

ARIES March 21-April 19 We need to become more unreasonable but in an intelligent way, says Aries politician Jerry Brown. Yes I agree And thats especially true for you right now, Aries. To Browns advice, I will add this message from Aries fashion designer Vivienne Westwood: Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insightthings that have nothing to do with reason. Heres one further suggestion to help you take maximum advantage of cosmic rhythms, courtesy of Aries historian Arnold J. Toynbee: The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.TAURUS April 20-May 20I have become whole and complete, like a thundering cloudburst in summer, wrote Taurus poet Mikls Radnti. I love that metaphor for fullness: not an immaculate icon of shiny, sterile perfection, but rather a primal, vigorous force of nature in all of its rumbling glory. I hope you like this symbol as much as I do, and I hope you use it to fuel your creative spirit in the coming weeks. PS: Keep in mind that many indigenous people welcome rainstorms as a source of fertility and growth.GEMINI May 21-June 20Pandiculation is a word that refers to when you stretch and yawn at the same time. According to my understanding of the astrological omens, you will benefit from doing a lot of pandiculations in the coming days. I also recommend gazing lazily out the window and looking at the sky a lot. Keep your shoes off as much as possible, get a massage or three, and let yourself sleep more than you customarily do. Did you know that sighing deeply is good for your lungs health Heres your homework: Dream up all the things you can do to relax and renew yourself. Its prime time to indulge in generous acts of self-healing.CANCER June 21-July 22 The ancient Roman author Plinys ten-volume Natural History, written in the first century, was a monumental encyclopedia of the natural world, unprecedented in its own time and for centuries afterward. It offered compilations of facts about astronomy, geography, zoology, botany, mineralogy, and many other subjects. There was one big problem with it, however. It contained a great deal of erroneous information. For example, Pliny described in detail many non-existent animals, including dragons, flying horses, and giant serpents that swallowed bulls and snatched birds out of the sky. My reason for telling you this is to inspire you to be extra discerning in the coming weeks. Be especially skeptical of authorities, experts, and other know-it-alls who are very confident despite being inaccurate or erroneous. Its time for you to increase your trust in your own authority.LEO July 23-Aug. 22There are those fortunate hours when the world consents to be made into a poem, writes Leo poet Mark Doty. Thats great for a poet. But what about for everyone else My variation on Dotys comment is this: There are fortunate hours when the world consents to be made into a holy revelation or a lyrical breakthrough or a marvelous feeling that changes our lives forever. I expect events like those to come your way at least twice in the immediate future.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22Between 37 and 41 BCE, Virgo-born Caligula served as third Emperor of Rome. To do so, he had to disprove the prophecy of a renowned astrologer, Thrasyllus of Mendes. Years earlier, Thrasyllus had predicted that Caligula, despite being well-connected, had no more chance of becoming emperor than of riding a horse across the Bay of Baiaea distance of two miles. Once in power, Caligula arranged to have a series of pontoon boats arrayed across the bay, enabling him to ride his favorite horse Incitatus from one shore to the other across the Bay of Baiae. I foresee the possibility of a comparable turn of events for you, Virgo. Is there a curse you want to undo A false prophecy youd like to cancel Someones low expectation you would love to debunk The coming weeks will be a favorable time.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22College student Amelia Hamrick studied the right panel of Hieronymus Boschs 15th-century painting The Garden of Earthly Delights. It depicts a hellish scene. Cities are on fire. Weird beasts devour sinful humans. There are demons and torture chambers. Hamrick did what no one in the history of art had ever done: She transcribed the musical score that the artist had written on a mans naked hindquarters. Her work inspired a composer to create a recording entitled 500-Year-Old Butt Song from Hell. In the coming weeks, I invite you to perform feats comparable to Hamrick: 1. Explore the past for useful, overlooked clues. 2. Find or create redemptive transformations out of stressful situations. 3. Have fun telling stories about your past misadventures.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21Born on one of the Galapagos Islands, Diego is a giant tortoise who has lived for over 100 years. Hes a member of the Hood Island species, which had dwindled to a population of 15 by 1977. Thats when he and his tortoise colleague, whose name is E5, became part of a breeding program with 12 female tortoises. E5 was reserved in his behavior, but Diego was a showboat who vocalized loudly as he enjoyed public mating rituals. Together the two males saved their speciesproducing over 2,000 offspring in subsequent years. According to my astrological analysis, you could be as metaphorically fertile as Diego and E5 in the coming monthseven if you prefer to adopt an approach more akin to E5s.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21The meaning of my existence is that life has addressed a question to me, wrote psychologist Carl Jung. Or, conversely, I myself am a question that is addressed to the world, and I must communicate my answer, for otherwise, I am dependent upon the worlds answer. These are superb meditations for you Sagittarians during the coming weeks. Between now and October 1, I invite you to keep a journal where you write about two subjects: 1. What is the main question that life asks you 2. What is the main question that your life asks the worldCAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19North Koreas Capricorn leader Kim Jong-un has an amazing rsum. Official reports say he learned to drive at age three and was an accomplished sailor at nine. As an adult, he developed the power to control the weather. Hes a skilled musician and artist, as well as a scientist who developed a miracle drug to cure AIDs, Ebola, cancer, heart disease, and the common cold. Most impressively, Kim is an archaeologist who discovered a lair where magical unicorns live. Is it possible you have unexpressed powers like these, Capricorn If so, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to identify them and start tapping into their potential. Its time to develop your dormant talents.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18Aquarian author Toni Morrison testified, I think of beauty as an absolute necessity. I dont think its a privilege or an indulgence. Its almost like knowledge, which is to say, its what we were born for. I urge you to adopt her perspective during the next four weeks, Aquarius. In my astrological opinion, a devoted quest for beauty will heal exactly what most needs to be healed in you. It will teach you everything you most need to know.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20Poet and translator Anne Carson periodically joins with her husband Robert Currie to teach a workshop called EgoCircus. Its an ironic title, because the subject they teach is the art of collaboration. To develop skills as a collaborator, of course, people must lay aside at least some of their egos needs and demands. In accordance with current astrological potentials, I encourage you to stage your own version of EgoCircus in the coming weeks. The time is ripe for you to hone your creative togetherness and synergistic intimacy.
