At Octihealth, our Medical Social Workers play a crucial role in the interdisciplinary care team, bridging the gap between medical care and the complex social and emotional needs of our clients. We are committed to delivering compassionate, comprehensive care that supports not just the physical recovery of our clients, but also their emotional resilience and psychosocial health, ensuring that every individual and family we serve feels supported, understood, and empowered throughout their healthcare journey.
