Special volunteer opportunities are available at our Cancer Center. Harrington is also one of the few hospitals in the country with an all volunteer team running its Gift Shop.

To make you feel comfortable and competent, we provide training in all areas. If you are interested in volunteering at Harrington or any of our affiliated campuses, please fill out an application form. Tuberculosis tests are required.

Magazine Donations

Magazines for our book cart for patients are not purchased. We survive on the generous donations of our community members and staff. We encourage our neighbors and friends to consider ordering magazine subscriptions for Harrington HealthCare.

If you have recently purchased magazines at home you have finished reading, we encourage you to drop them off at Harrington for our patients and their families. Do you have airline frequent flyer miles you are going to lose? When an airline offers magazine subscription for points, please consider ordering them for the Harrington’s magazine cart.

If you are so generous to do so, use the following address: Volunteer Services, Harrington Hospital, 100 South Street, Southbridge, MA 01550. This is the link to the company that works with the majority of airlines; you just need your frequent flyer number: http://www.magsformiles.com/about.htm

Do you have an upcoming appointment? CALL FIRST

If you have an upcoming appointment at any Harrington HealthCare System facility and have the following symptoms, fever, or cough, please call your doctor prior to arriving to your appointment.

Our top priority is to protect you, our patients, communities, and healthcare workers.

Current Visitor Policy

For the health and safety of our patients and employees, the following policy is in effect as of Monday, March 30

There will be NO visitors allowed in any inpatient or outpatient services (this includes the Emergency Department, Harrington Physician Services offices, and all other Harrington HealthCare Facilities)

Please note that the Main Lobby at Harrington Hospital in Southbridge will be closed at 7pm. All patients who need to enter the hospital after that time should come in through the ED.

The implementation of this policy is in an effort to limit the spread of potential illnesses that could be harmful to you, our patients, community, and staff. Thank you for your cooperation.

TELEHEALTH Appointments Now Available

To protect your health during the COVID-19 pandemic, certain appointments may now be conducted via TELEHEALTH, a service that allows you to see your doctor from home via a phone call or via a video conference call using your smartphone or computer.

If you are interested in scheduling a TELEHEALTH appointment, please let our office know when you call to make your appointment. We will do our best to accommodate your request if TELEHEALTH is appropriate for the type of care you need.
