Social Services Department

Social Workers Team

At Children’s of Alabama, social service is provided by a staff of thirty professionally trained masters and bachelor level social workers. Each worker is licensed by the State of Alabama and has a minimum of five years of work experience in a health care or social services agency setting. At Children’s, social workers are assigned by medical service and cover both inpatient units and outpatient specialty clinics. The social workers function as an integral part of the health care team by linking the patient, family, and hospital staff with the community.

The primary function of the social worker is to address the social and emotional needs of patients and families that affect or are affected by the child’s illness and/or disability. The goal is to provide services to patients and their families that will aid them in attaining their maximum level of psychosocial functioning while they are dealing with the medical condition of their child.

Social services includes but is not limited to Pre-Admission Planning, Crisis Intervention, Support and Guidance, Care Coordination, Resource Identification and Referral, Case Consultation, Education, Discharge Planning, Financial Assistance and Advocacy.
