Dayton VA Medical Center, Ohio
Social Work Service
Social Work supports VHA strategic goals and performance measures and monitors through provision of a wide-range of bio-psychosocial services based on core values and commitment to Veterans and their families. Social Workers are active participants in education, research, and performance improvement initiatives that help ensure VHA's continuing leadership in health care service delivery and the highest quality patient-centered health care. Social Work Service will collaborate with community agencies and advocacy groups to enhance the care and services provided directly by Social Work Service and other staff at Dayton VA Medical Center.
You will find Social Workers in all program areas at Dayton VA Medical Center who are ready to help with most any need. The Social Worker will be able to help you or refer you to the right person. A Social Worker will contact you shortly after your admission to obtain information which will help us to plan for your care. The Social Worker will attempt to help you with social, personal, and family problems which may interfere with your treatment. They can also help with discharge planning and referrals to other programs and community agencies. A Social Worker will also be available to you upon request.
