New Britain [May 24 2011] - The New England Society for Healthcare Communications (NESHCo) recently honored The Hospital of Central Connecticut with seven awards for excellence in marketing, public relations and communications.

The hospital earned four Gold Lamplighter awards, for communications and marketing materials promoting a float nurse recruitment campaign and a hand hygiene campaign; and for photography and feature writing for an article on the hospital’s Emergency Department. The hospital also earned a Silver award for public relations promoting its Caring for Colleagues employee assistance program; and an Award of Excellence for expert advice newspaper columns. The hospital, Southington-Cheshire YMCA and Central Connecticut Senior Health Services earned an Award of Excellence for the annual Healthy Family FunFest.

The Lamplighter awards were presented at NESHCo’s spring symposium May 17 in Portsmouth, N.H.
