It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I inform you that the President and Chief Executive Officer of Behavioral Health Services, Inc., Henry van Oudheusden, passed away Friday afternoon at Long Beach Memorial Hospital.
His three year battle with cancer is finally over.
Henry’s dedication and selfless service to all who crossed his path will always be remembered.
On a personal note; before he was the Executive Director of my agency, he was my Professor and his ability to transfer knowledge enabled me to obtain my license as a Registered Addiction Specialist. He was a generous, loving, intelligent and capable man, and I will miss him a great deal, personally and professionally.
Funeral arrangements will be set up next week and I will keep you informed as information becomes available.
