Social Work

The Social Work Department serves to facilitate the adjustment of patients and their families to the social, emotional and economic consequences of illness. The social worker aids in planning for discharge, offers counselling and advocacy services, prepares psycho-social histories, completes referrals to appropriate agencies, and liaises with various local, regional and outside resources for the purpose of supporting patient needs.
