About our Emergency Care Centers

We may all require immediate medical attention at some point in our lives, and we want the best care for ourselves and our loved ones.

Harrington’s Emergency Care Centers (ECC) provide immediate, compassionate medical care  24-hours a day, 365-days a year from seasoned physicians and highly-trained nurses, with much shorter wait times than surrounding facilities.

Harrington’s Emergency Departments are staffed by Associated Physicians of Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians (APHMFP) of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).

APHMFP Emergency Department focuses on the community and manages four affiliated hospital emergency care centers, including markets in Worcester and New Bedford, and cares for over 250,000 patient visits per year. The department has also developed uniform clinical practices, quality systems, and transfer protocols to ensure excellent patient care throughout the network.

Read some of our patient testimonials:

“… We felt grateful we were in such good hands…”

“… We cannot say enough wonderful things about the care…”

“…A textbook example for best practices in care…”

We also pride ourselves on these additional advanced clinical opportunities:

  • Expert, real-time reading of imaging scans by BIDMC radiologists;
  • One of the only hospitals in the region to offer 24-hour emergency service for psychiatric patients and their families;
  • Seasoned nursing staff, many with advanced training that extends beyond emergency medicine;
  • Integrated laboratory, nutrition, social work, surgical and support services.
