Uncompromised standard of care.

Due to Luna County’s remote location, their limited financial resources, and the competition from area hospitals and other healthcare providers, recruiting and retaining qualified, high-performing licensed providers can be complex. To add to the complexity, Luna County contracts with Federal, Marshall, and other New Mexico counties to house their inmates, which results in rapid fluctuations and unpredictability with the county’s population, placing a strain on the healthcare provider and the county’s detention team. In order to effectively recruit qualified healthcare professionals and meet the unique and evolving needs of the county, CorrHealth offers robust compensation rates and an industry-leading benefits program, which is standard within the company. A team of CorrHealth leaders based in New Mexico who are tenured and skilled in the various intricacies of the correctional health care industry provides support and training to Luna’s medical teams. In an attempt to avoid the use of utilizing agency nursing, where nurses are often inconsistent, CorrHealth has recruited and established a team of New Mexico based travel nurses who are prepared to travel and fill in when called to duty.

Luna County still expects the same standard of care and service that the larger counties receive, and we weren’t going to stop until we found it. CorrHealth has not only exceeded our expectations for care and service, but they have also found creative solutions to our recruitment and retention concerns regarding healthcare staffing.
