Roy Fazio, Partner and Executive Vice President of The Protocall Group, is a long-time Samaritan volunteer board member, golf tournament co-chair and tireless hospice and healthcare advocate. Fazio, one of Samaritan’s founding volunteers, joined its Board of Trustees in 1983, just three years after Samaritan’s launch as the first hospice to serve southern New Jersey and one year after successful advocacy in Washington resulted in Medicare reimbursement of the fledgling US hospice movement.

As co-chair of the annual golf tournament for the last 10 years, Fazio has helped raise more than $1 million for programs and services which receive no other reimbursement. His strong support and advocacy earned him the 2003 Community Leader of the Year award from the New Jersey Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Fazio’s community service extends beyond Samaritan. Nineteen years ago, he developed and still chairs a national trade organization of non-competing independent staffing industry companies to share best practices. He currently serves on the board of Liberty Bell Bank, as well as on the Burlington County Chamber Economic Development Committee and Military Affairs Committee. Former affiliations include the board of the Chamber of Commerce of Southern New Jersey and the board of the Homecare Association of America.
