Dr. Kathy Finn and Kristin Morales, Executive Director at Harrington Hospital’s new Urgent Care/Express Center in Charlton spoke with us about this new facility. Dr. Finn and her staff will take care of all Urgent Care patients when the Center opens on September 17th. Dr. Finn and Kristin enlightened us about Urgent Care which is a vital and emerging trend. The Center will provide access for acute illness and injuries that are beyond the scope and availability of primary care providers and clinics. Anything that is not life or limb threatening will be handled at this new facility thereby greatly reducing the number of patients who now visit Harrington’s Emergency Room. Plus, being treated at this new facility is considerably less expensive than being treated at the ER. Urgent Care/Express will be open 7-days a week: M-F 9am to 7pm; Sat & Sun 9am to 5pm. We are indeed fortunate to have such great healthcare facilities so close to us.
