About Us


At Harrington HealthCare System, we provide comprehensive healthcare to the residents and communities of South Central Massachusetts and Northeastern Connecticut. Committed to Total Local Care (TLC), we provide compassionate care and advanced technology close to home. We are continuing a long tradition of offering integrated services, including comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care along with community outreach programs.

Founded in 1931, Harrington Hospital has always operated as a nonprofit institution governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, serving the best interests of the public. Today, Harrington is a comprehensive regional healthcare system anchored by the hospital, a modern, 114-bed acute care center in Southbridge. In addition to Harrington Hospital, we have a freestanding cancer treatment center on our Southbridge campus, a comprehensive outpatient facility in Webster, a large medical office building in Charlton and satellite physician offices throughout the region (see our At a Glance section for more information). Despite our growth, our mission has been constant: to provide our patients with high-quality medical services in a safe environment.


Harrington Physician Services

Our growing affiliated physician group, Harrington Physician Services, employs more than 60 primary care and specialty physicians throughout Southern Worcester County, with offices in Brimfield, Charlton, Webster, Southbridge, Spencer and Sturbridge.


Our Diagnostic Imaging Department collaborates with renowned Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and we have strong relationships in both clinical staff and  associated services with University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center. Harrington is also a teaching hospital for University of Massachusetts Medical students.

Hospitalist Program

Our board-certified Hospitalists provide on-site physician care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Hospitalists work with patients’ primary care physicians and consult with other specialists as needed, providing excellent clinical care and prompt response.


Auxiliary members volunteer time to support personalized patient care and improve healthcare throughout our community. The Auxiliary and Volunteer Department run fund-raising projects to support community health programs and augment hospital needs.
