Speaking with a Social Worker

Social workers are here to help you and welcome your call. We are available for all hospitalized patients and all patients seen in our clinics and emergency rooms. In general, your communication with a social worker is protected by law and cannot be released without your consent. However, in order to provide you with the best care, we may share some information with other members of your health care team. If you have questions about our confidentiality policy, please ask your social worker.
