Social Work Services

Being in the hospital or having an ill loved one can be difficult for the whole family. At the University of Chicago Medicine, social workers play an integral role in providing the best possible care for every patient during his or her hospital stay and outpatient treatment.

Our social workers are available to assist you and your family by offering:

  • Counseling and support
  • Help to understand your (or your loved one's) medical condition and how it impacts you and your family
  • Access to appropriate resources
  • Assistance in planning for ongoing care needs in anticipation of discharge
  • Assistance with Advance Directives
  • Crisis intervention and assessment of personal safety needs
