Read the latest news and events from CorrHealth and the correctional healthcare world.

When emergencies happen in correctional settings, our teams are well-prepared to respond quickly. Recently, although ambulances had been called, our teams were able to respond within minutes. Susie Barksdale, RN and Director of Nursing at one of our facilities remarked, “All of us here, including security, are equally proud of the nursing staff who responded to the officer involved incident, Nurses Bragg, Minter and Newby all acted immediately and conducted themselves as the true professionals they are.”  Our nurses are always ‘on duty’ whether they are with an inmate patient or just going about their daily routine.

“During a routine med pass, the Captain at one of our Texas facilities noted, “less than a week as our new inmate health care provider, one of CorrHealth’s team, Nurse Patrick, noticed an Officer looking sweaty and pale. She instantly began to assess his health. Apparently, his appendix had just burst. He was immediately rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. As a direct result of Nurse Patricks’ attention to detail and her skill set, the Officer was able to go home to his family that night. He’s healthy now and has returned to work.”

Nurses tell us, ‘It’s very rewarding work’ and although these moments don’t happen every day, we certainly appreciate you every day. A big shout out to all our nursing team members for everything they do!  If you’re looking for a more rewarding career, check out our newest opportunities here. 



Three cheers for Efren Urbina, LMSW and Mental Health Professional at our Luna County facility. Efren has just confirmed the donation of 100 Spanish language books donated for our Spanish speaking Federal inmates at Luna. Our thanks to Efren and the generous residents of Luna County for donating these much-needed books. Although Efran is relatively new to our CorrHealth family, he has already made a difference in people’s lives. Once he learned that the detainees had asked specifically for Spanish language books, coordinating the donation was his mission. In very little time, Efren has fulfilled this wish.

If you or someone you know has a compassionate heart and a passion to make a difference in this world, check out our career opportunities.


Jonathan is now a Certified Correctional Health Professional (CCHP).  He passed the exam while attending the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) conference last week. As a member of our Operations Training Team for 3 years, he’s already knowledgeable about our policies and has excellent clinical judgement/skills. Becoming a Certified Correctional Health Professional illustrates a mastery of NCCHC standards and the ability to apply them to support the quality of patient care. It’s also a tangible way to commit to correctional health care as a career. Always organized, dependable, and positive, it’s a privilege to work alongside Jonathan. Well done!
