Hospital staff member receives community service award

New Britain [December 19 2011] - Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) nurse Nancy Crampton, R.N., of the Plantsville section of Southington, received the hospital’s Loretta Martinelli Community Service Award Dec. 14.

The award, presented at the hospital corporators’ meeting, is given annually to a dedicated employee who has made a notable contribution to the well-being of the community and displays compassion, integrity and respect for others.

Crampton has worked at HOCC’s Bradley Memorial campus for 25 years in various departments and is currently in the special procedures unit. Outside the hospital, she is involved in numerous community activities. She and her dog, Mayson, provide pet therapy at the Southington Care Center. She is active in her church, Zion Lutheran of Southington, volunteering with the church at the Apple Harvest Festival. She also participates in Zion Lutheran’s Covenant to Care Program, which provides gifts and various necessities to local teens in need, many of whom are transitioning from foster care to independence. In addition, Crampton serves as nurse liaison at the Grace Methodist Church Nursery School; is co-president of the Wilcox College of Nursing Alumni Association; and serves on the board of HOCC’s Bradley Memorial campus Auxiliary.

The community service award Crampton received is named for Loretta Martinelli, a member of the New Britain General Hospital board of directors until her death in 1996. Martinelli was committed to community service and received numerous awards for her volunteer work. Martinelli awardees receive $100, and the hospital donates $500 to the charity of the recipient’s choice. Crampton is dividing her donation between the Jane Haze Pet Therapy Fund and Covenant to Care program.
