Description: About the Event:
A Fare to Remember 2018 will be raising money to help the Harrington Hospital Emergency Department (ED) Renovation Project, estimated at $5 million. The Harrington Hospital Southbridge ED 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 communitys need 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, plus a triage room and an overflow room.

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.

Proceeds from A Fare to Remember 2018 will assist to:
 expand capacity to serve 35,000 patients annually by adding 2,400 square feet and modernizing the existing 8,500 square feet through renovation;
 fortify and increase safety of patients, staff and visitors by creating a more secure facility and improved patient flow;
 provide a more ergonomic nurses station with standing height charting counters;
 locate an additional computed tomography (CT) scanner in the footprint of the ED. This will reduce vital treatment time for patients by eliminating transport to another floor and provide additional capacity to conduct scans for all patients.
