Bon Secours Wellness Arena
On September 18, 2013 Bon Secours St. Francis Health System purchased naming rights to Greenville's major entertainment venue, the fomer BI-LO Center located downtown. As residents have taken note of the name change, many are wondering what inspired us to make such a large and unexpected investment.
For more than 80 years, we've proudly called Greenville home. As part of our effort to be "Good Help to Those in Need," we have a longstanding history of supporting the growth and development of our community. In fact, this bold move is consistent with our namesake, the Sister of Bon Secours, who went into the community to care for people in their homes at a time when doing so was forbidden. Their compassionate actions two centuries ago changed the landscape of healthcare, just as the new Bon Secours Wellness Arena will change the perception of modern-day health outreach.
Our partnership with the Greenville Arena District marks a milestone in our service and investment in the community. In addition to the live entertainment, speakers, events and conferences the arena is known for, we have developed a vision for the Bon Secours Wellness Arena that integrates health and wellness initiatives designed to engage visitors and help them lead healthier, happier lives. From health-conscious concession options to educational kiosks and interactive exhibits, our hope is to expand the use and influence of the arena by welcoming visitors and the Greenville community on a whole new level.
