The Cancer Center at Harrington (Central Mass Cancer Center)

The Cancer Center at Harrington is a free-standing $14 million cancer treatment center at 55 Sayles Street on the edge of the main Harrington Hospital campus in Southbridge, Massachusetts. The opening of the center in June 2009 means that cancer patients can get world-class care close to home, without having to travel to Worcester or Boston or Springfield.

The two-story center is jointly operated by the not-for-profit Harrington Hospital and the for-profit corporation Radiation Therapy Services, Inc.

The first floor, operated by Radiation Therapy Services, opened in June 2009. It offers the latest in radiology treatments, such as Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), which focuses the radiation treatment on the tumor and spares the normal tissue.

The second floor, operated by Harrington and called The Cancer Center at Harrington, opened in early December 2009, just a little more than a year after the hospital broke ground for the building.

The Cancer Center at Harrington offers infusion/chemotherapy services as well as counseling services, including an on-site social worker, to help patients and their families with the psycho-social issues related to cancer. The Cancer Center at Harrington also features a Resource Room, with computer access, to allow patients and their families to research cancer and cancer treatments. The room will be staffed by volunteers from the American Cancer Society and the hospital Auxiliary.
