NYU Langone Medical Center’s clinical social workers are licensed mental health professionals (LMSW/LCSW) trained to help people find solutions to many problems- from daily issues to life’s most difficult situations. This is accomplished through a unique combination of counseling and direct connection with a network of community resources. From patient care to patient transitions, concrete referrals and emotional support, world class care requires caregivers specially trained to help people navigate today’s complex health care system. We depend on our social workers to ensure that NYU Langone Medical Center exceeds a patient’s expectations in every respect.
NYU Langone Medical Center employs a care management model in which social work is an integral part. Master’s prepared social workers are paired with nurse care managers to guide and support patients and their loved ones. From preadmission to a stay in the hospital to transition to home or another care provider the social worker and care manager team contribute to safe and efficient quality care that exceeds patients’ expectations.
Social Workers at NYU Langone Medical Center are provided with clinical supervision and the work experience that is required to obtain clinical licensure and to maintain professional standards. Our staffing is structured to provide support to our social workers allowing them more time for direct patient and family contact. Along the way, our social workers encounter meaningful career opportunities and exceptional experiences: ongoing education, professional development, supportive colleagues, and wellness programs and activities, to name a few.
We are particularly interested in hiring social workers – LMSW or LCSW – that have proven hospital experience working with inpatient populations. This background is essential for true success within our world-class environment.
