The MetroHealth Social Work team provides leadership in identifying and addressing psychosocial aspects of health care to maximize the potential for successful outcomes and patient satisfaction.
With the goal of helping patients reach their highest level of independent functioning, social workers focus on the alleviation of psychological, social and environmental problems that may interfere with access to care, quality of life and/or the effective utilization of health care resources.
The Social Work team's core values are:
- Commitment to the social work profession
- Advocating on behalf of vulnerable clients
- Maintaining strong collaborative relationships within The MetroHealth System and with key community agencies and institutions
MetroHealth social workers are master’s-level practitioners who are experienced and licensed by the state of Ohio. They are here to advocate for patients and families and to assist them in obtaining resources, solving problems and adjusting to new and difficult circumstances.
We are here to help.
