Central Region Employee Giving Campaign

Employees of The Hospital of Central Connecticut are invited to join our annual giving campaign!

The Central Region Employee Giving Campaign is a fundraising effort that offers employees the opportunity to make a personal contribution of any amount. Over the past ten years, employees at The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) have generously donated over $600,000 for programs, services and medical equipment that have had a direct impact on the patients we care for.

Employee giving sends a profound message to the community that employees not only work here, but also truly believe in our mission to improve the health and healing of the people and communities we serve.

Consider making a donation today. Your tax-deductible donation will stay at HOCC, and will make a difference for the patients we care so deeply about.

Gifts can be made by cash, check, credit card or payroll deduction.

Robert (Bob) Flade

An HOCC Employee Going Above and Beyond for His Hospital

Robert (Bob) Flade has worked at The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) for 22 years. He started his career in the Intensive Care Unit as a new Registered Nurse graduate. From there he worked in the North building (N-2), and then in the emergency department, where he is now the Regional Director of Emergency Nursing.

Bob has supported the emergency department through the Employee Giving Campaign for more than 13 years. He feels that no matter our circumstances there is always someone we can help and when we realize exactly how much we have been given, we owe it to others to help. 

“I feel a spiritual need to assist those who need help and I feel that I receive so much more than I ever give,” Flade said.

“As employees we want to make sure we provide the best for our patients and we can only do that when we have the resources,” Flade said. “We are able to leverage a more comprehensive system of healthcare so we can have better outcomes for our patients.”

When Bob is not being rewarded by his work or his drive to help others, he spends a great deal of his spare time weaving. Bob purchased a large loom many years ago -making anything from scarves and floor runners to bedspreads. Although using the loom requires great math skills, he finds weaving to be incredibly satisfying and relaxing.
