It is with deep sadness that the Board of Directors of Bailey House recently announced the death of our CEO, Gina Quattrochi. She passed away December 13, 2016, following a valiant battle with cancer.
Gina was the CEO of Bailey House for 25 years. Gina’s commitment and dedication to her work and her tireless advocacy around ending HIV/AIDS leave an incredible legacy, both at Bailey House and in the wider community. She was a visionary leader and advocate who believed that housing and healthcare are human rights. Gina’s work helped to transform the lives of those she touched, and she will be deeply missed.
As we begin the search for a new chief executive, the Board of Directors has asked Denise Arzola, Senior Vice President, to serve as acting Chief Operating Officer. Denise joined Bailey House in November of 2004 and has over 20 years of administrative, clinical and supervisory experience providing services and designing programs and interventions for vulnerable and at risk populations. During her tenure at Bailey House, she and her team have obtained operating licenses for both Mental Health and Substance Abuse clinics, expanding Bailey House’s services to include HIV negative individuals and those challenged with chronic illnesses. Denise is committed to ensuring the organization continues to move forward with the same core values, vision and integrity established by Gina.
