Bon Secours health system filed a Certificate of Public Need application to develop a hospital on the Bon Secours Health Center at Harbour View campus in Suffolk, Va.

The application proposes transferring 18 acute care beds and four operating rooms from Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center to establish a two-story, approximately 76,000 square foot facility on the Harbour View campus.  The new hospital will provide care for patients requiring surgeries within specific specialties and who are not expected to require extended inpatient stays.

Bon Secours Maryview will continue to offer inpatient and outpatient services.
