         - SOCIAL WORKER - 


    Our founding promise to the community is as valid today as it was over a century ago: we will care for all children in our region, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research, and serve as the pediatric and adolescent, academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.


    In 2018, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's best children's hospitals – for the 26th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.


    As a Magnet designated institution, we recognize the importance of hiring and developing great talent to provide best-in-class care to the patients and families we serve. Our organizational DNA takes form in our core values: Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Equity and Innovation. Whether it is delivering frontline care to our patients and families, or the day-to-day interactions with our colleagues, our values are the fabric of our culture and community.




    This clinical social work position is full time, Monday-Friday, on the BMT service.  This is a primarily inpatient position and experience in the field of Oncology is preferred.


    This position will provide clinical social work services to children followed by the BMT team, their families, the staff of Seattle Children’s Hospital and the community in a managed care environment. This individual will assist in promotion of culturally appropriate family-centered care and wellness of patients and families by identifying, interpreting, and reducing psychosocial factors contributing to illness. In addition, the role will include the need to counsel and aid patients and their families to understand medical recommendations as it pertains to transplant and assist with non-medical problems interfering with effective patient care.  We also hope this individual will participate in coordinating and planning programs and activities to meet the social and emotional needs of patients and/or patients’ family.
