Sub: Application for Hospital Social worker

Dear Mr. Richardson,

I am writing this letter to inquire about social positions with your hospital. I had come across a recent article about your hospital, mentioning that you are developing new teams to provide health care services for mentally challenged individuals and geriatric patients. I was deeply touched by your social welfare initiative, and it has inspired me to be part of your team. There by I would like to give my candidature for any open relevant position suiting my profile.

I am sure my BSW (bachelor's in social work) qualification will come in handy, to meet your requirements. I also have a strong experience in medical service delivery of various kinds. I am sure this makes me a suitable candidate for any open relevant position. My practice at local welfare organizations has provided me with deep insight about social work and its implications. I also have a good local geographic awareness, which can help me to perform effectively.

I am sure if we meet, we can discuss better alternatives to decide on the best of ways to fulfill the job requirements. Otherwise, I would request you to keep my name in your records for any openings arising in the future.

Looking forward to be a part of your welfare team.



Thomas K Eden.
