Patient safety, confidentiality and satisfaction are hospital-wide priorities.

Due to the sensitive nature of data collected by the department, the team takes great care to provide a confidential, safe place for the public to come to find solutions to their problems.  As a preliminary security measure, the patient’s identity is confirmed each time he or she contacts the office.  Team members ensure they have permission to speak to a patient’s family members before releasing any information to them. 

The Social Services department is here to help you.  Contact them at (830) 278-6251 ext. 1308 for more information.
