Harrington’s Second Urgent Care Location Announces Opening for Patient Care
OXFORD, Mass. November 11, 2016 – Harrington HealthCare System has announced its newest UrgentCare Express location at 78 Sutton Avenue in Oxford will open for patient care Monday, November 21. This is the second urgent care location for Harrington, which opened its Charlton location in September 2015.
Located across from Market Basket, Home Depot and the Oxford Retail Crossing Plaza, UrgentCare Express in Oxford will have the same hours of operation as the Charlton site: Monday – Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Oxford location includes 11 patient exam rooms, on-site X-ray for patients who need immediate imaging services and a lab draw station for blood work.
The November 21 official opening will follow a community open house for the public held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 19. Local residents are invited to tour the facility, meet staff and receive educational material.
“We are continuing to respond to the growing demand in our area for urgent care centers,” said Kristin Morales, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Harrington Physician Services. “Our Charlton practice has surpassed all projected volumes in the past year. By adding a second facility in Oxford, we are fulfilling a need in a community where there isn’t a lot of option for non-emergency care treatment, while giving the residents in that area better access to high-quality health care.”
Dr. Robert McCarron, a board-certified physician with more than 30 years’ experience in emergency care settings, will be the lead physician on staff, with support from a number of physician assistants and other board-certified physicians.
Dr. Josh Flanagan, a board-certified physician at Harrington’s Emergency Departments in Southbridge and Webster, is the medical director for Harrington’s UrgentCare Express.

- Allergies or asthma
- Minor cuts that require stitches
- Ear infections
- Fevers and flu
- Minor fractures, sprains, or broken bones
