Changing Character of the Jewish Hospital: Implications for Social Service Aministration

By Doris Siegel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1962

Advances in medical technology changed the way hospitals worked, allowing under one roof "the full range of services in acute care, convalescence, after-care, including home-care and full out-patient department follow-up." In an increasingly complex medical environment, the social implications of illness for a patient's life situation must be of concern to all agencies in the community; as a result, the involvement of social workers must increase in order to assure that each patient is receiving the holistic treatment she needs. Though the field of social works needs to engage in introspective research to better understand its own value to health care, it must simultaneously work to incorporate itself into the hospital system on nearly every level.
