Bon Secours Mercy Health, one of the 20 largest health systems in the nation and the fifth-largest Catholic health system in the U.S., has acquired through an asset purchase agreement, affiliates of Community Health Systems, Inc. (CHS), transitioning ownership of Southside Regional Medical Center, Southampton Memorial Hospital and Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center to Bon Secours Mercy Health. The deal was effective as of January 1st.

The three hospitals are now part of Bon Secours’ network, expanding the health system’s network of care to the communities in southeastern Virginia.

“Today, in celebrations at each hospital, we welcome Southside Regional Medical Center, Southampton Memorial Hospital and Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center into our compassionate ministry,” said John Starcher, Bon Secours Mercy Health president and CEO. “Southeastern Virginia is a rapidly growing area, and we look forward to continuing to invest in the health and well-being of area residents while ensuring our facilities are places where associates want to work, clinicians want to practice, people seek wellness and communities thrive.”

Clinical and operations leaders began working together this fall, to create a seamless transition of care delivery, keeping the patient at the center of all care and services provided. The three facilities will join the Catholic tradition of Bon Secours Mercy Health, continuing to provide quality compassionate care to patients of all faiths and traditions.

The acquisition unites the complementary strengths of each facility with the best practices and strong foundation of a regional health system for the benefit of the community. Together, the teams are focused on creating a leading health care system across Virginia, achieving economies of scale and enhancing access for growing populations. The three hospitals are part of the Bon Secours Mercy Health Atlantic Group. Southside Regional Medical Center and Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center are in the Richmond market, and Southampton Memorial Hospital is now part of the Hampton Roads market.

“I am excited Southside Regional Medical Center and Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center have joined the Richmond market,” said Faraaz Yousuf, president of Bon Secours Richmond market.  “Our ministry is known for its ability to sustain and enhance medical services in a variety of communities, and I look forward to finding synergies and working with our new associates to serve the communities of Petersburg and Emporia, Virginia.”

This expansion comes two months after the system announced its intent to acquire the three hospitals and their assets. All active associates in good standing at Southside Regional Medical Center, Southampton Memorial Hospital and Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center have joined Bon Secours Mercy Health and have worked closely with leaders to ensure a smooth transition. Bon Secours Mercy Health leaders have been on site over the past 60 days to help transition associates into the health system, sharing information about Mission, vision, core culture behaviors, identifying best practices and opportunities, and clarifying next steps.

Fat Kid Sandwiches launches as new overstuffed sub concept from “ghost kitchen” operation

Richmond’s first ghost kitchen has launched a new concept that you’ll want to have “get in your belly!” Fat Kid Sandwiches launched in late July; the newest concept from Jon Martin and Liz Clifford of Dunharrow Concepts, Richmond’s first ghost kitchen.

Fat Kid Sandwiches boasts exactly what you think it does. Overstuffed, indulgent subs, grilled cheeses, and sky-high clubs flank the menu. You won’t go hungry as most sandwiches are two hearty servings.

After launching Garden Party last month, Fat Kid Sandwiches is Dunharrow’s second delivery-only restaurant – which is what a “ghost kitchen” essentially is. With the success of the vegan and vegetarian concept, they hope Richmond receives their sandwich concept with the same excitement.

“We’ve had a really great response so far,” said Clifford.

The pair have already hosted a preview event and a pop-up at The Veil Brewing Co. as part of the concept’s launch.

The Bangin’ Grilled Cheese boasts American, Provolone, and Cheddar on a homemade sandwich loaf. His grandmother’s recipe, Martin makes this bread himself, and it truly makes the sandwich. Add tomato, avocado, or bacon if you’d like and you’ve got yourself a grilled cheese your childhood-self would be pleased with.

If you like to be in control, you can also “choose your own adventure” and build a sub exactly to your liking. Have no fear, vegans, and vegetarians – they’ve got you covered as well.

Fat Kid Sandwiches can be ordered online for delivery Wednesday through Saturday from 5 – 9 p.m. You can find them on UberEats, GrubHub, and most recently on Richmond-based food delivery service, ChopChop.

A local orchid grower is putting down roots in the West End due to customer demand.

Chadwick & Son Orchids Inc has announced it is opening a new orchid store in the West End in the Gaskins Place Shopping Center. The new space should be ready by September 1st.

The company, based in Powhatan, says the new location fills the need for Chadwick’s many West End clients and helps to meet the increased demand for plants in general. Chadwick’s existing store in the Museum District was recently renovated and will remain.

“Our West End clients have been asking us to open a store near them for years and plants are experiencing a surge in popularity right now because so many people are working from home,” the company said in a news release.

Chadwick & Son has 11 greenhouses in Powhatan and specializes in a service called ‘orchid boarding’ in which clients pay to have their plants taken care of. There are currently over 13,000 plants in production.

“Orchids, in various forms, have been in vogue for over a century – first as corsages, then as collector’s items, now as everyday houseplants,” a company representative concluded.

Chadwick & Son Orchids was founded in 1989 by Art Chadwick and his son, Arthur.
