About BSV, Inc.


Dr. Michael A. Gillette,

Bioethical Services of Virginia, Inc. provides medical ethics programs and services. Bioethical Services was established in 1994 by Dr. Michael Gillette with three primary objectives.

  • First, to provide assistance to healthcare providers, patients and families when they face difficult ethical issues and troubling healthcare decisions.

  • Second, to work with hospitals, hospices, long-term care facilities community providers of services and managed care organizations in order to bring about an environment that is receptive to the discussion and consideration of ethical issues.

  • Third, to provide educational programs to schools, associations, organizations and community groups in order to help people become more informed and thoughtful healthcare consumers.

Services such as ethics committee training, policy review and clinical ethics consultations are available to hospitals, hospices, long-term care facilities and managed care organizations.

Continuing medical education (CME) programs are available as well as presentations, seminars and workshops for hospitals, schools, organizations, associations and community groups.

Consultation with individual patients and their families is also available.
Because every facility has its own unique history and purpose, we individually tailor services to meet the specific needs of each health care setting. Whether your goal is to satisfy JCAHO accreditation guidelines, to develop an educational program for staff, to respond effectively to a difficult medical ethics problem, or develop policies that are consistent with your values, Bioethical Services of Virginia, Inc. has the ability to help.
