The Social Work staff at Cabell Huntington Hospital helps patients and families deal with the impact of illness or hospitalization. Staff members specialize in working with certain kinds of patients, such as expectant mothers, the elderly or pediatric patients. Because of this experience, the social workers are familiar with issues that are common to their patients, and they are aware of resources in the hospital and the community that may help their patients.
Social workers provide support to help patients and their families adjust to a hospital stay and plan for discharge. The department will provide home healthcare planning and referrals for patients who may need skilled nursing, therapy and related health services at home. Staff members also provide counseling for social and emotional concerns and to coordinate hospital and community services for the good of the patient. For more information please call (304) 526-2090.
