A state-of-the-art mental health care program.

In her first term in office, Sheriff Zena Stephens made a commitment to the Jefferson County community that she would increase the quality of care and raise the standard in mental health coverage for their inmate population. In 2018, the county became CorrHealth’s first site located in Texas. Recently, the Jefferson County Commissioners court voted unanimously for the long-term renewal of the contract. By working closely with the county, CorrHealth has established 24/7 mental health care and state-of-the-art detox programs and services to meet the specific needs of their inmate population.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Jefferson County and will maintain our diligence as stewards to their taxpayer dollars. Despite a notoriously tough recruiting environment, CorrHealth will begin recruiting to add and fill roles for healthcare professionals and add more service hours,” said Todd Murphy, President, CorrHealth.

In a recent surprise jail inspection from the Texas Commission on Jail Standards, our inspector stated, While most of the jails around the state are providing adequate levels of care, what CorrHealth is doing is right. Their program is spectacular and one the rest of the state should be following.
