Social Services helps with things such as:

  • Helping patients identify needs and making referrals to community services and resources
  • Coordinating post-hospital services and placements
  • Coordinating with all care providers to help you develop a discharge plan that meets your needs
  • Providing education, information and assistance with completing Advance Directives, such as the Healthcare Power of Attorney
  • Providing information and guidance regarding guardianship
  • Assisting patients and families with coping related to their medical situation
  • Helping patients navigate the health system
  • Acting as patient and family advocates
  • Performing insurance benefit checks 

You may speak with a member of the Social Services team by calling the main hospital at (608) 742-4131, or by talking with your health care provider or any other member of the Divine Savior Healthcare team.
