Helping You Heal, Inside and Out

At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, our social workers work with your doctors, nurses and other caregivers to provide you with personalized care that goes beyond medical treatment. We are here to address your emotional concerns throughout your hospital stay and beyond so you can focus on getting better.

All of our social workers are masters-level clinicians licensed to practice by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with specialized training in psychology, human growth and behavior, sociology and cultural diversity.

About Us

We begin with an assessment to determine what kind of help you need, and then we provide an action plan to help you to define your priorities and make changes if necessary.

Our services include:

  • Connections to appropriate community and hospital resources
  • Counseling for you and your family
  • Group therapy
  • Help with practical concerns (insurance, transportation, medication, disability benefits)
  • Support groups for those with similar illnesses and concerns, such as cancer or heart disease
