Please note that as of Friday, November 20, 2020 there will be NO visitors permitted at any Harrington HeathCare facility until further notice (with the exception of essential help to provide care for disabled or pediatric patients).
We understand that the support of visitors is a comfort to our patients, but with cases of COVID-19 once again on the rise we must first protect the health and safety of our patients and staff. We will continue to monitor the situation and will adjust our visitor policy again as circumstances allow. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation during the pandemic.
We ask that you remember our top priority is the patient’s treatment, comfort and safety. During hospitalization, our goal is to provide an environment that promotes healing and a positive experience for the patient and their visitors.
During Flu Season, we’re doing our part to help keep patients and visitors safe.
As a visitor, you can help your loved one and play an important role in the patient’s healthcare experience and recovery.
To minimize the stress that accompanies hospitalization, you can help reassure and encourage the patient as well as offer comfort and security during your visit. You can also offer to assist in activities the patient can’t accomplish while in the hospital—mowing the lawn, collecting the mail, etc.
If you have special circumstances that do not follow our visiting hours, tell a nurse or unit manager so we can work to meet your needs.
The Harrington Gift Shop, located inside our main hospital campus lobby in Southbridge, offers our guests a unique shopping experience with a wonderful array of personal gifts for yourself or someone special.
Our Gift Shop is run by dedicated volunteers. We specialize in offering unique gifts that are sure to brighten anyone’s day.
Whether you are buying for a patient inside our hospital, thinking about an upcoming birthday or graduation gift, or decorating your house for the holidays — we can offer it all. We’re a one-stop destination store with a selection that expands beyond the get well card!
Other high-end gifts inside our store include beautiful large watches, Alex & Ani bracelets, seasonal attire, home decor, Demdaco figurines, handbags and more.
We also sell magazines, candy, toiletries, stuffed animals and toys, non-latex balloons, stamps and greeting cards.
Proceeds from all purchases in the Gift Shop are used by the Auxiliary to provide equipment and programs that benefit the health and well-being of members of the communities served by Harrington HealthCare System.
The Gift Shop has a wide array of items that can be delivered, within the hospital only, including floral gifts. To order flower and gift deliveries to patients, call (508) 765-6479. Flowers and plants may not be allowed in all units — generally, flowers, plants and sometimes balloons are not allowed in any ICU units. Please contact the appropriate nursing station or the Gift Shop to confirm whether the patient has any restrictions.

Saturday – Sunday: hours vary, call ahead.

Whether you’re looking to lower your cholesterol or blood pressure, better manage your blood glucose, lose weight, or increase your energy and prevent disease, Harrington’s Nutrition Department can help.
