Medical Social Worker

shutterstock_85266823 copyOur Social Work team conducts assessments of social and emotional factors related to the patient’s injury or illness, provide counseling based on the assessment, and assist with community resources. They are an invaluable resource in helping the patient and family cope with the stresses of an injury, illness or major life change, and offer guidance for how to cope with a variety of psychosocial issues. This may involve assisting with practical tasks such as arranging meals and transportation after a hospital stay.

Medical social workers courageously step into these situations and mobilize all available resources to help patients recover or live the remainder of their lives with the greatest possible degree of dignity and independence.
