Regional Hospice & Home Care has recognized Governor Dannel Malloy. He was presented with a crystal recognition award during a gathering last night in Danbury. Malloy is the chair of the state Bond Commission, which provided Hospice with $1.2 million for the Healing Hearts Center for Grief and Loss.
A 3,200 square foot expansion to the plans for the Hospice Center allowed Healing Hearts to be housed there.
A paver etched with his name was also installed on the pathway of the Healing Hearts Garden.
Hospice CEO Cynthia Roy says Malloy and other officials recognized the needs of dying patients and the community members who are grieving the loss of loved ones. Roy says they are grateful for the bonding support for the new hospice and bereavement centers.
