YNHH’s longest-serving employee celebrates 50 years

YNHH’s longest-serving employee celebrates 50 years

Robert Bonvini was 16 and going into his senior year at West Haven High School when he was hired as a “lab aide” in the hospital’s Laboratory Services department, then located on the second floor of Fitkin. He was hired to wash dishware which, in those days he recalls, they did by hand, and fill tubes with mineral oil in which blood was collected.

Bonvini has worked a half century in Laboratory Medicine, entirely in the chemistry lab, which he says, "I’ve always found interesting." While attending college and participating in the Connecticut National Guard, Bonvini worked his way up and today is the lab’s assistant chief technologist. Although he did not meet his wife at Yale-New Haven, he is married to Ann Marie Bonvini, who is the manager of the Yale New Haven Health Call Center.

"Bob is definitely the go-to person in clinical chemistry," said Peter Marone, director, Laboratory Medicine. “He knows every facet of that lab and there is not a technical problem he can’t solve or figure out how to solve.”

Bonvini says he’s not ready to retire. "I’m excited about Lab Medicine’s move to 55 Park Street next year," he says. "It will be my third move – and I’m looking forward to being part of it."
