Hospital Social Services
Navigating the medical system can be challenging for many people, so we offer hospital social services to assist you throughout the process.
What Is Hospital Social Work?
The healthcare system can be confusing, especially during times of stress. Our qualified hospital social work staff is ready to provide emotional support and guidance through every step of your hospital visit.
Our hospital social services can include:
Admitting and Discharging Patients
Providing Emotional Support
Developing and Implementing Patient Care
Working with Agencies or Insurance Companies
Arranging Outpatient Treatments
Hospital Social Services at EARH
For our local patients of Ritzville, we can provide complimentary transportation to and from your appointments. When scheduling a Care-A-Van ride, be sure to contact our team before the day of your appointment.
You can find more information on the rules of our Care-A-Van service here.
This program allows East Adams Rural Healthcare to access prescriptions at reduced prices. We work alongside Ritzville Drug and a third-party administrator to participate in the 340B Prescription Drug Program with no additional steps required of the patient.
