Provider: Ruth Delva, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I’m excited to be a part of an organization that has been around for 5 decades helping those in need and aiding in building the behavioral health department.

What is your patient care philosophy?

I believe patients come first. They should be treated fairly, kindly and receive the upmost respect and service.

What would you like people to know about you as a physician/provider?

I’m naturally a caring and empathetic individual and I believe my purpose on this on earth is to serve and be there for others in a time of need.

How does your work improve lives?

We know health is very important. Mental health, I believe, is equally, if not more important. Allowing patients to freely voice their thoughts and feelings in a safe space without judgment is critical. My work allows a person to relieve their stress and address lifelong and/or current issues to propel them into a healthy state and having a clearer mind.

What are some interesting facts about you?

I thoroughly enjoy spending quality time with family and practicing self care. This can include listening to music, watching TV, or meditating.

My favorite quote is, “Do unto others as you would like to be done unto you.”
