These services are provided or supervised by members of Spalding University’s Kosair Charities College of Health and Natural Sciences social work faculty.

We ensure:

  • Client focused and team-driven care designed to support the patients and their therapists through completion of all collaborative goals
  • A direct response to addressing barriers to treatment for both the client and their family
  • A systemic approach to addressing barrier issues including financial, support, and access concerns
  • One-on-one assessments to assure each patient is connected to the resources necessary for maximizing rehabilitation goal achievement and additional meetings are provided on an individual basis as deemed appropriate.
