Our Medical Social Service Department is available to assess patient and family needs to assist with long range planning and decision-making. Each patient’s medical condition, socioeconomic status and emotional factors are considered when arranging for assistance with transportation, housing and meal provisions. Social Service can also assist with financial concerns regarding eligibility of Medicare, Medicaid and other government funded programs and work with the caregivers to ensure that the best possible care is given to each patient using appropriate community resources.
