Social Services

A hospital stay often requires additional services and care. That's why our team of dedicated social workers assists patients and family members with financial, social, and emotional issues that may arise during or after hospitalization.

Our social workers work with patients and families to help them deal with long-term illnesses, rehabilitation and continuity of care transitions. When needed, our team can be involved in every aspect of the discharge process including:

  • home health services
  • meal preparation services
  • equipment rental
  • social/emotional support services
