Commitments … we all have them and the same holds true for those at Harrington.
For 86 years we have been committed to the community – providing quality advanced care close to home, and the community, in return, has been committed to us.
The Project: Renovation to the emergency department at our Southbridge campus currently estimated to cost $3 million.
Its Purpose: To increase capacity in order to meet the needs of our growing community. Since its last renovation in 1998, the annual volume of visits has grown 23%, from approximately 22,000 to 27,000, with steady increase over the most recent years.
- The Emergency Department (ED) of Harrington Hospital on the Southbridge campus started out as two stretchers in a single room and continued in that configuration until 1971 when the first significant upgrade occurred. An additional four stretchers and an orthopedic cast room were added.
- The community’s needs for an ED continued to increase and so in the 1980s an additional four stretchers were added, this time with private rooms for patient comfort.
- The last major renovation occurred in 1998 to bring the ED to its current complement of 14 stretcher rooms, (including electronic physiologic monitoring capability) plus a triage room and an overflow room, these last two rooms outside of the main Emergency Department.
