Hospital honored for supporting employees in National Guard and Army Reserve

New Britain [June 11 2013] - The Hospital of Central Connecticut recently received a citation for supporting employees serving in the National Guard and Army Reserve.

Southington resident Carl Venditto, chairman emeritus of the Connecticut Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), presented a plaque to the hospital June 3. Robert Stair, director, Rehabilitation Services and Occupational Health, accepted on behalf of the hospital. One of Stair’s staff members, Elizabeth Gonzalez, is serving in Africa in the Army Reserve.

“This plaque recognizes you as a patriotic employer,” Venditto said in presenting the citation. “It honors your contribution to national security and to liberty and freedom by supporting the National Guard and Reserve.”

ESGR, a Department of Defense office, was established in 1972 and works to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.
