This month, Regional Hospice welcomes Robert Bedoukian of Danbury, Connecticut to the organization’s volunteer Board of Directors. As President of Bedoukian Research, Inc, an international supplier of fragrance and flavor ingredients, Bedoukian is a skilled leader and dedicated chemist.
“I was introduced to Regional Hospice by board member George Mulvaney, and from my first tour of the Center and meeting with President and CEO Cynthia E. Roy, I understood what a special place it was,” says Bedoukian. “It is a privilege to be associated with the organization.”
For the last 45 years, Bedoukian has led Bedoukian Research Inc. with great pride while also volunteering with other organizations’ Board of Directors such as Ability Beyond, Nuvance Health Network Research Institute, Fragrance Creators Association and Purdue University.
Amidst the Coronavirus crisis, Bedoukian Research Inc. produced 2,500 gallons of emergency hand sanitizers to be donated to various local healthcare organizations including Regional Hospice. “During this difficult time, we are grateful to be in a position to give back to the community and will continue to show our support in the fight against COVID-19,” said Bedoukian Research. Bedoukian and his company continue to support the community in various ways, extending a helping hand during these uncertain times.
Bedoukian looks forward to pledging his support to Regional Hospice staff, volunteers and patients and their loved ones.
A distinguished nonprofit hospice provider since 1983, Regional Hospice walks alongside patients and their loved ones enabling those in our care to focus on what matters: living fully when facing life-limiting illness. Patients of all ages―from babies to adults―in private homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in four Connecticut counties benefit from our services. Our Center for Comfort Care & Healing is the first residential hospice center of its kind in Connecticut, offering all the comforts and amenities of home. The North Star pavilion will make Regional Hospice the only residential hospice center for children in the Northeast and one of only five in the country. We believe no two patients are the same; no end-of-life experience is, either. As advocates for innovative hospice care, we encourage conversations around end-of-life choices because we believe there is more to care than just medicine. Healing is our business, patients and their loved ones our priority.
