Our Bon Secours logo, a fleur-de-lis with three branches, shows that we are 1) Rooted in the Past, 2) Standing in the Present, and 3) Reaching toward the Future. Once you tour our website, come visit our campus and see for yourself.
The commitment of the sisters of Bon Secours is the foundation on which we were built.
Maria Manor Nursing Home began as Florida Care of St. Petersburg on June 16, 1963. It was quickly sold to a Philadelphia nursing home operator and renamed Fairview of St. Petersburg. On January 1, 1975 Fairview Manor Nursing Home of St. Petersburg was sold to the Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg and on December 8, 1975 Maria Manor, a not-for-profit Catholic skilled nursing facility was dedicated by the Most Reverend Charles B. McLaughlin, who was the first Bishop of St. Petersburg. On December 15, 1988, Maria Manor was sold to the Sisters of Bon Secours and renamed Bon Secours Maria Manor Nursing Care Center.
By blending the mission of the sisters - Good Help to Those in Need ® - with the tradition of quality, Maria Manor is the personification of compassionate care for the people of Tampa Bay. Maria Manor has been accredited by The Joint Commission since 1998 and has received numerous awards and recognitions for its unique programming including the prestigious Codman Award for its initiative and interdisciplinary approach to the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers in 1999. While Bon Secours Maria Manor is one of the only Catholic facilities serving the Diocese of St. Petersburg, persons of all faiths and backgrounds are served. We are proud to be recognized as one of Florida’s premier nursing and rehabilitation centers.
In November of 2000, Bon Secours Place, an assisted living facility licensed for 105 residents, was added. The facility capacity includes 36 suites dedicated to specialized care for those with Alzheimer’s and related diseases. The facility was developed as a community with a neighborhood concept containing approximately 12 residents per neighborhood. Bon Secours Place was the first assisted living facility in the state of Florida to receive Joint Commission accreditation and is the only Catholic assisted living facility in Pinellas County.
The most recent addition to the continuum of senior services within Bon Secours St. Petersburg Health System is Bon Secours Home Care established in 2006. In January 2010 Bon Secours St. Petersburg Home Care was awarded The Joint Commission accreditation. Operating in Pinellas, Pasco and most recently Hillsborough counties, staff members bring the tradition of compassionate care to promote healing and provide help in individuals' homes. Working closely with primary care physicians, patients are supported to achieve a speedy recovery from surgeries and acute illnesses. We provide disease management for long term illnesses as well as private duty services to help extend independence in the home environment.
With the addition of home care to the skilled nursing, rehabilitation and assisted living services, we honor the roots of the Sisters of Bon Secours and offer a complete post acute continuum of quality care focused on the unique needs of the elderly.
