Social Work at St Paul's ensures that we are looking at a person as an entire being, this means that a patient may come to us for a specific service and as we talk to them we may realize that they are in need of additional services. We make those referrals in-house to the food pantry, dental, eye clinic. At times our parents may need referrals beyond what we are able to offer-- We are uniquely positioned to create bridges to external resources in our community to ensure that our patient's needs are being met.
Plays a vital role in connecting our patients with community resources and providing case management. Our staff members are knowledgable in the process required for our families to fill out applications for SNAP (Food Stamps), Medicaid, CHIP, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). We lend assistance during the process.
Provider collaboration leads to the development of an individualized treatment plan that results in meeting the specific needs of the patient. We strive to provide the best patient-centered care by spending time with our patients to evaluate their specific needs. If needs are identified, the patient will be referred and connected to the necessary services within our organization or to organizations within our community.
