Social Services at MDI Hospital serve many important roles in delivery and management of care in our organization and beyond. Our goal is to provide compassionate, professional, confidential support for people suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues.
As a liaison between the Hospital and MDI Behavioral Health Center, Clinical Social Work professionals facilitate scheduling of therapy, substance abuse services, outpatient psychiatric consultations, and prescription of medications as needed. We also help coordinate psychiatric admissions, gather information for psychiatric consultations, and provide counseling support.
As part of the Care Management Team, our staff meets with Hospital patients to address mental health needs and provide patients with information about available resources.
In addition we offer guidance for families of Hospital patients regarding coping with the health of loved ones, discharge planning, and accessing services like prescription assistance.
Our staff also coordinates with providers and services outside MDI Hospital’s system to ensure a smooth transition for our patients.
Our Social Services staff is also involved in facilitation of a free support group for cancer survivors and employee wellness programs for local employees of MDI Hospital and other local employers.
