From history

Social work at the Faculty Hospital in Motola was created in the 50s and 60s on the basis of the methodological measures of the Journal of the Ministry of Health. At that time, the social service for adult patients of the Municipal Hospital in Motola was performed by two social workers: Ing. Peksová and Mrs. Beňová. With the merger of the Children's Faculty Hospital in Motola and the Municipal Hospital in Motola, a separate social department began to emerge under the leadership of Ing. Peks. As FN Motol expanded, so did the activities of the social department.

In 1982, Mrs. Jitka Sklenářová held management activities in this department, who worked there as a manager until 2005. During her tenure, social work in health care began to develop as a specific professional activity, an integral and necessary part of the treatment and nursing process. The foundations were thus laid for the creation of the concept of social work in this hospital.

From 2005 to 2011, Mgr. Marková Věra. Its contribution was mainly in the introduction of good methodological procedures. It has introduced a system of requesting social care based on the request system throughout the hospital. Mgr. Marková also organized a conference with international participation, which presented, among other things, the model of social work in health care in Austria and the Czech Republic.

Since 2011, Mgr. Vargová Jana.
