Bernie Sweener, Clinician-Licensed Master Social Worker at Vanderheyden Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of human services.
With 20 years of professional experience to his credit, Mr. Sweener was originally a construction worker for 30 years before he decided on a career change. His new career path made itself clear while he was working in a hospital and saw a patient brought in who gave no family information. After the patient managed to give the name of his sister, Mr. Sweener did research, contacted her, and brought the two together after ten years without speaking to each other. He knew he had found his calling and began his new career in medicine as a case manager for the St. Anne Institute from 1999 to 2004. Afterward, Mr. Sweener took on the position of a medical social worker at Seton Health, where he served for a year.
In 2014, Mr. Sweener accepted his current position as a licensed master social worker at Vanderheyden Hall Inc., providing professional services to residents and their families. Outside of his immediate professional responsibilities, he is an active member of the National Association of Social Workers and the National Coalition Building Institute. Mr. Sweener attributes his success to the values his parents, Ulysses and Roseanna, instilled in him throughout his upbringing. Both his parents are naturally kind-hearted, and they instilled a strong work ethic in him, which continues to benefit him to this day.
