At Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation, we recognize the power behind a village and its ability to make a difference. That’s why we partner with so many amazing teams like the social workers at St. Joseph Hospital—Liz, Sharita, Bri, and Carolyn. When a family needs our support, social workers are there to tell us how we can help. We couldn’t do what we do without them. We are excited to share more about the Social Workers at St. Joseph Hospital.
