Patient Information

Social Work / Case Management

The social worker/case manager assumes a leadership role in planning and preparing for the individual’s discharge from the inpatient program. Social workers/case managers help patients and family members deal with social, financial, and emotional aspects of the patient’s condition.

This planning and preparation begins when the individual is admitted to the inpatient program, continues during the inpatient stay and culminates when the team determines that the individual is ready to move to the next step in the rehabilitation process.

The social worker/case manager is also responsible for arranging for individual tutoring for adolescents when necessary to address the patient’s educational needs. A formal meeting with the family and caregivers is scheduled when appropriate and communication with the family and caregivers occur throughout the duration of the individual’s rehabilitation at Burke.

In addition, social workers/case managers serve as hospital liaisons with the patient’s insurance case manager.

What's Happening at Burke

Thank you to everyone for making the Burke Award special!

The celebration of the 25th Burke Award Dinner was held on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

This year’s event was extra special as we saluted and honored our Burke Healthcare Heroes who have worked tirelessly treating survivors of COVID-19, as well as traditional rehabilitation patients.

Our staff are truly heroes for the passion, dedication and professionalism they demonstrate every day, especially in the face of this unprecedented challenge. Their efforts have never wavered, and they should be recognized and applauded.

There’s still time to make a donation in support of our Healthcare Heroes.
