CorrHealth’s programs and services are designed to maximize on-site programs and services, reduce inmate movement and decrease costly, risk-laden offsite medical related transports. Over the years, CorrHealth’s leadership team has established strong and trusted partnerships with various ancillary (dental, laboratory, x-ray, medical waste, dialysis, OB/GYN and pharmaceutical) medical and mental health providers who currently subcontract with CorrHealth to provide quality and professional on-site healthcare programs and services to our inmate population. We also maximize services by proactively retaining, recruiting, hiring/contracting, training and supporting locally based medical and mental healthcare providers who understand the goal and are committed to treating our inmate-patients on-site and “Do Right” by them, our partner-counties and our communities.

It has been proven over the years that one size does not fit all when it comes to correctional healthcare. Counties need and deserve much more than the standard off-the-shelf programs and services, which most providers attempt to fit for their clients. CorrHealth understands every county has unique and specific needs, which is why a CorrHealth partnership is tailored specifically to meet and exceed the unique, and evolving needs of your facility and your county.

CorrHealth Is The Provider Of Choice When Integrity, Transparency And A
True-Partnership Matter.
