Community Health Clinic opens in Manchester

Bon Secours — Richmond, VA

New $3 million Community Health Clinic opens, funded by donors

The clinic is an extension of the Bon Secours Care-A-Van, providing uninsured patients with better access to health care services

The Bon Secours Community Health Clinic will work in tandem with the Care-A-Van mobile clinic to better support uninsured community members. Located at 2301 Everett Street in the Center for Healthy Living, the clinic's hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  


With a cost of more than $3 million, donors who support the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation are the reason the clinic exists. One generous donor even gave a $2 million estate gift.

For nearly three decades, the Care-A-Van has served as a medical home for uninsured patients through partnerships with local churches and nonprofit organizations, and we continuously strive to earn and maintain the trust of our patients by providing consistent, quality, compassionate health care. This new location allows us to provide the same compassionate care our patients know and trust, and it allows us to better manage our patients' chronic diseases in a state-of-the-art clinical setting which is outfitted with the latest medical technology. We look forward to welcoming our established and new patients here.

Care-A-Van Mobile Clinic

Uninsured adults and children in the Greater Richmond area have a free and convenient option for medical care at the Bon Secours Care-A-Van. This donor-funded mobile clinic provides primary care, urgent care and preventative care services, including immunizations, treatment for chronic illnesses and even social work support.

It takes hundreds of thousands of dollars to operate the Care-A-Van and to provide more than 24,000 patient visits each year. Your donation means everyone can get the high quality health care they need, near their own neighborhood.

The Care-A-Van also provides medical care for asthma, family planning, sports physicals, children's health insurance enrollment, and health education services. The Care-A-Van team is bilingual (Spanish/English) and composed of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, patient care technicians, licensed practical nurses, drivers, registrars, trained medical interpreters, registered dieticians and outreach workers.
