The Social Work Department is a vital part of the professional Health Care Team. As members of the Health Care Team, Social Workers can help patients and their families cope with difficult and stressful times, which are impacted by illness, disability, and death.
Social Workers provide assessments, counseling, education and referral services to patients, residents, or families within the Sunrise Health Region.
Services are available throughout the Health Region in all Acute and Long Term Care facilities, or through visits to your home. In Esterhazy, there is a Community Resource Worker that can assist you by providing information, or an assessment of your needs. For general inquiries only, the department has an administrative assistant that is available Monday to Friday.
The Social Work Department maintains an open policy for referrals. All requests for services are addressed by a qualified and caring Social Worker.
When making a referral or needing information please call:
(306) 786-0463, or the main switchboard at any health facility.
