Experiencing Stress?

A visit to the hospital can be frightening and intimidating for you and your child. Getting the best help can sometimes be frustrating. Social workers are available to support you and your child and help meet the needs of your family. Social workers at Primary Children’s Hospital are available Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 5:00 PM. They can be reached at 801-662-3701. Social workers are also available at Riverton PCH Outpatient Services; ask your provider or at the front desk for their availability.

Here are some of the services that our social workers can provide:

  • Assistance with transportation and temporary housing
  • Advice regarding financial concerns or insurance issues
  • Lending a listening ear when you are feeling stressed
  • Advice when you need someone to help you problem-solve, prioritize, or set goals
  • Support when your child needs help adjusting to the hospital
  • Advice if you need ideas to meet the needs of your other children at home
  • Assistance if you or your child is grieving a loss
  • Aid finding resources in the community
  • Resources for support and education groups
