March is recognized as National Social Work month. Our social workers put their patients first by providing support for our patients’ social, emotional and financial needs while undergoing treatment in the hospital. We all count on the selfless work of our LeConte social workers – Bailee, Amy and Kaylan.
Read why the members of our case management team are passionate about what they do below. We are very thankful to have these caring individuals at LeConte Medical Center.
Bailee: For me, social work is a calling. I support people at their lowest point and enjoy helping them to restore hope. Our day is never the same – one day we are with people at their happiest, for example the birth of a new baby or their lowest point after the death of a loved one. Our job truly runs the gamut and I take pride in helping destigmatize some of our most vulnerable populations.
Amy: My role as a social worker gives me a unique opportunity to give a voice to people who are the most vulnerable. We often see patients during a crisis or at a low point in their life and I find it very rewarding to be an advocate for patients during this time.
Kaylan: I’ve always felt a calling to help and love people in any way that I can. I have a passion to love and empower people who don’t always feel loved and encouraged.
