Dr. Mark Simonelli and Dr. Christine Carey will be available at the 100 South Street, Suite G05 location in Southbridge to continue providing diagnostic, surgical and routine gynecological and urogynecological services for women. Their scope of practice includes, but is not limited to, well woman annual GYN checks, adolescent and teen health, birth control, menopause, abnormal uterine bleeding, sexually transmitted infections, abnormal pap smears, urinary incontinence, pelvic prolapse issues and all post-natal care. Dr. Carey will also continue to be available in Spencer for appointments.

The organization has announced a new collaborative partnership with Women’s Health of Central Massachusetts (WHCMA), who will be managing all prenatal and obstetric care effective May 31, 2018.

Women’s Health of Central MA ( is the largest independent physician’s group in Central Massachusetts. Beginning May 31, patients will be able to schedule appointments in their newest office location at 164 South Street, Southbridge, adjacent to the main hospital campus. The office will be staffed by obstetricians and a certified nurse midwife. Deliveries will continue to be performed at UMass Memorial Medical Center – Memorial Campus in Worcester.

Women’s Health currently has offices on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester, Marlborough and Webster. The independent practice has 12 board-certified obstetricians and midwives, many of whom will be rotating to the Southbridge office. The group is very much looking forward to assuming pre- and postnatal care for Harrington’s obstetric patients.

HPS obstetric patients are being assisted to transfer medical records and continue receiving care close to where they work and live.
