Social Services

The social workers at Ascension Seton Family of Hospitals are key members of the healthcare team, working with patients and their families to help manage the complexities of the hospital stay. With decades of experience, our social workers are committed to educating family members, serving as advocates, and facilitating communication during and after the hospital stay. They perform psychosocial assessments, provide counseling and support to help families cope with the emotional stresses of illness and hospitalization, assist with discharge planning to ensure continuity of care, and provide referrals to community services and resources.
