Achieving Balance

It's not easy balancing your personal needs with your professional obligations. That's why The Hospital of Central Connecticut offers work/life programs to help you keep life on an even keel. Some of the benefits that make it easier for you to get the most out of life include:

Flexible Work Arrangements

Flexibility in work scheduling helps accommodate important personal and family priorities for HCC employees. Options can include part-time employment, flexible service, and weekend-only programs, to name a few.

Child Development Center

The Hospital of Central Connecticut Child Development Center provides high quality child care for the children of employees and those affiliated with the hospital. Children ages eight weeks to five years are eligible for enrollment. The center has four programs to meet the developmental needs of children: Infants; Pre-toddlers; Toddlers; and Pre-school. The center is open from 6:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

Employees save money on federal income taxes by contributing to the Dependent Care Account. They can use their contributions to pay for eligible expenses for child or adult care for eligible dependents.

On-site Fitness Center

The Cohen Good Life Center at the New Britain General campus makes staying fit easy and convenient. This progressive, well-equipped exercise facility is staffed by specialists who provide exercise evaluations, individualized fitness plans, and supervision.

Healthtrax Fitness and Wellness

Employees enjoy substantial savings on fitness memberships at Healthtrax centers. In addition, employees receive discounts on all Healthtrax programs including swim lessons, special classes, children's birthday parties, and more.

Health and Wellness Programs

Through our award-winning Health Promotion Program, HCC sponsors a number of programs and services to help you stay healthy. Examples include annual free health screenings, a variety of weight loss programs, smoking cessation, stress management, yoga, and exercise. Our WellRewards incentive program allows you to earn WellPoints for engaging in healthy behaviors, which can then be redeemed for catalogue gifts.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

If employees need help looking for solutions to one or more of life's problems, Solutions EAP is available to assist them. The program provides free, confidential, short-term counseling and referral services for employees and family members. Counseling is available on-site or at a number of off site locations.
