Auxiliary Scholarship

The Auxiliary at The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC), New Britain campus, has established a $1,000 Scholarship for high school seniors pursuing education in a health-care related field.

Our Auxiliary is one of the oldest in the United States. It was organized in 1899 by local women and was first called “The Women’s Hospital Board” – known today as The Auxiliary at The Hospital of Central Connecticut, New Britain campus.

The Auxiliary continues as a viable part of the fabric of HOCC. Two major fundraisers are held, a Golf Tournament and the Crysanthemum Ball, with each one targeted to support major gifts to the hospital. Two Auxiliary run Gift Shops, “The Wishing Well” at the New Britain campus and “Simple Comforts” at the Cancer Institute, add to the monies the Auxiliary can support.
