Job description

The Springfield Memorial Hospital social workers intervene in the context of a patient’s social environment and relationships, recognizing the effects of psychological, familial, social, economic, and cultural determinants on health and well-being. With a focus on patient-centered care and the ability to consider the complexity involved from a psychosocial perspective, the social worker offers a unique contribution to the healthcare team by providing services to meet the multidimensional needs of patients and their families. The goal is to address social needs that may lead to readmissions or adverse outcomes and contribute to an appropriate length of stay by removing psychosocial barriers that may be limiting access to post-acute care.
