Adam Hilliard, Captain of the Adult Detention Center

Midland County, Texas

“Transitions are always nerve-racking events, but CorrHealth immediately set our anxiety at ease by communicating completely and providing us with a thorough transition plan detailing every step of the process, to include what we could expect with their communication, coordination and work with our previous provider. CorrHealth’s ownership and leadership showed up at our facility several days prior to the transition to begin a 3-day series of orientation and training sessions, they were on-site hours before midnight, they stayed long into the next day and several members of their training and leadership team were here around the clock for weeks after the transition to ensure their new team was trained well, confident and ready to operate on their own.

Successful partnerships begin with a complete and successful transition, and without a doubt, CorrHealth is doing it right and they’ve proactively taken the right measures to ensure our partnership is a success. We’re highly impressed with them and its clear we made the right decision by choosing CorrHealth.”

Bill Jennings, Major and Correctional Jail Manager (CJM)

Comal County, Texas

“CorrHealth is passionate about finding the right people for us, about providing genuine support, continuous professional development, and corrections’ specific training opportunities for their healthcare team, as well as ours. It’s for this reason, I’m confident, that we have the best mental and medical healthcare team we could ever ask for here in Comal County.”

Jon Nichols, Lieutenant of the Adult Detention Center

Midland County, Texas

“Unnecessary medical related transports are labor and time intensive, they’re costly and they increase our risks and liabilities, and decreasing these transports was a prime focal point for us when selecting our inmate healthcare partner. CorrHealth’s leadership presented creative solutions to safely and responsibly reduce these transports, an EKG was one of the methods they proposed, which they implemented the evening of their transition. Within 12-hours of transitioning, they engaged the EKG with three patients, and successfully prevented three transports which certainly would’ve gone out with our previous provider.

CorrHealth listened to us, they understood the issues which keep us up at night and they get it where our previous providers did not. CorrHealth is doing a remarkable job and I can’t be happier they’re our partner.”

Chris Brice, County Manager and Director of the Adult Detention Center

Luna County, Texas

“Your team rose to the challenge of taking over from a previous organization who had failed to meet the majority of our contract requirements. Your ability to recruit and retain medical professionals versus simply putting bodies in positions in this rural part of New Mexico was impressive. The stability your team has delivered to this vital part of our organization is exactly what we needed to ensure our detainees receive the care they need and deserve.

Stepping in with very little notice, the transition was nearly seamless. From top to bottom your organization is professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend your services to any facility who is looking for the highest quality, professional and proactive medical      services.”

Derek Meador, (RETIRED) Chief Deputy

Wichita County, Texas

“My experience with Todd Murphy and Victor Hutchinson has been excellent over the years. They possess an understanding of the medical needs of our jail and our inmates, as well as county administration that is far beyond that of any other medical provider I’ve interacted with. Going from county managed to contracted inmate medical with them was one of the best moves the county made in my opinion. When these two individuals, Todd and Victor, left one of our providers (their former company), there was an immediate, and noticeable decline in inmate care and corporate responsiveness to our county’s needs. With a master’s degree in public administration, I frequently found myself frustrated with a lack of understanding on how county government works, both by vendors and county officials. I can’t stress enough how well they understand the dynamics in county government and how to navigate them to get the job done.

I highly recommend them (CorrHealth) again, and indeed I have done just that. At my retirement I had twenty-one plus years in county government, fifteen of them in management or administration over the jail. One of my last recommendations was that the county move to CorrHealth.”

Terry Box, (RETIRED) Sheriff,

Collin County, Texas

“In my 32 years as Sheriff I have worked with many contactors and I can proudly say without hesitation that Todd, Victor and their team were the best, and they set the bar for any other companies we contracted with, regardless of industry. They were heavily engaged throughout our bid process and stayed actively engaged throughout our partnership. Their tireless dedication and deep understanding of their business was impressive and inspiring to me, and those they worked with. Under Todd and Victor, we had the best HSA and health care teams we’ve ever had, they supported them well, moral was always high, and their turnover was minimal. They implemented innovative programs and were actively engaged with local community groups to help curve the recidivism cycle. I could not be more pleased with their level of personal attention, service and support they’ve always provided to me and my administration, our agency and with our community. When issues occurred, they were always there, and often within hours, to quickly resolve the issues at hand. 

I am excited at the approach which they’re delivering with CorrHealth. Its innovative, it’s something this industry has been needing for a long time and I believe it’s one that can change the way this industry looks at all of its business partners.  

I offer my highest recommendation and I am happy to stand for CorrHealth for any agency seeking an inmate healthcare provider who genuinely cares, who understands local governance and truly gets it.”

John Shauberger, Chief Deputy

Jefferson County, Texas

“CorrHealth is exceptional at communicating their goals and their customer service is a priority at all levels of their company. The level of communication and planning was exceptional during the transition and remains so. They are very knowledgeable and professional and able to overcome situations as they arise.”

Sarah Keeler, County Finance Director

McKinley County, New Mexico

“We’re in a much better place since we partnered with CorrHealth.”

Gilbert Armendariz, Director

Sandoval County, New Mexico

“I can say without a doubt choosing CorrHealth was one of the best decisions we’ve made thus far. They provide behavioral health services as part of their program and we’ve been impressed with their team of behavioral health professionals who have stepped in and made a real difference with our inmates and our facility.

Joe Chavez, Warden

Valencia County, New Mexico

“There were several factors which influenced our RFP Committee and I choosing CorrHealth. With their smooth transition and their attention to detail, our choice of Contractors seems to be spot on. There were several factors in our choosing CorrHealth, some of which were:

CorrHealth is comprised of industry professionals who we know well, people we trust, and they know what we need and what’s important to us. Their ownership and leaders have served us very well in the past and they clearly know their business. We know they’ll be here for us when an issue arises. Passion, integrity and ethics matter and Todd, Victor, Mary have exemplified these traits over the years, I’ve known them, and we trust they’ll take great care of us for many years to come.

Matt Elwell, Warden

San Miguel County, New Mexico

“Dilemma-When your correctional healthcare provider files bankruptcy who are you going to call? “Just a Couple of Guys in a Garage” that’s who!

CorrHealth stepped up to the challenge and within a week we had negotiated terms and on the following Monday they began serving the detainees incarcerated in the San Miguel County Detention Center. CorrHealth’s ownership and core management team-members came on-site to lead the conversion and services continued without interruption. Todd, Victor, along with their staff have embraced the challenge and are committed to providing quality health and mental healthcare services in our detention center, they also teamed up with us in our efforts to fight the Opioid epidemic through our in-custody Medication Assisted Treatment Program.

We would like to thank CorrHealth and their management team for their professional and quick response. We look forward to a good partnership in the safety and care of those incarcerated in our facility.”

Ricky Armstrong, Captain

McLennan County, Texas

“After years of contracting with local Medical Doctors who managed our inmate healthcare services, although skilled Doctors, we realized they lacked the experience in correctional healthcare. When it was time to contract with a new medical provider, we decided to look real-hard at the correctional healthcare providers in our industry.

In 2012, our Sheriff ran on a platform of not privatization the employees of the jail which include the inmate healthcare programs and services. This meant that any healthcare provider would have to provide healthcare services and co-manage our county employees who would serve as their nurses, which we knew was something other providers weren’t willing to do. After a couple of simple conversations with CorrHealth’s Founders we quickly realized they got it, they understood our situation, they understood our needs and we quickly had the confidence they could handle it.

Mark Chamberlain, Retired Chief Deputy of Corrections

Garland County, Arkansas

Clay Corn, Director of Adult and Juvenile Detention Services

Chaves County, New Mexico

“I am very impressed with CorrHealth. I trust them and appreciate our partnership thus far. I like the ability to call their leadership and ownership at any time for swift resolutions. Its peace of mind and a comfort level that we lacked with our previous providers.”

He went on to say,

“When CorrHealth says they’re heavily engaged, they mean it. During our transition, their ownership, leadership, and transition team were on-site days in advance for employee orientation and training, and they remained on site until they were confident their staff were well versed in CorrHealth policies and protocols before leaving. Truth be known, they were on-site more during the initial week of transition than our previous provider was over the last four years they held our contract. Very engaging and impressive… all positive at this point.”

“CorrHealth is a great company and I’m really glad they’re here. With CorrHealth, I no longer worry about our medical and mental health programs, as I did with our former providers.”

What Our Team-Members Are Saying

Our team-member and partner testimonials are important to us and we are proud to share them. We will periodically add additional testimonials as we receive them, so please check back often to see why our team-members and our county-partners have chosen and recommended CorrHealth to their peers.

Alicia Passaretti, RN/CCHP Operations and Training Specialist

Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming

“I was encouraged to contact Todd and Victor by a mutual acquaintance (from a competing inmate healthcare provider) who felt that my philosophy of care for incarcerated individuals would mesh well with CorrHealth’s. After being a part of this organization for the past several months, I couldn’t be happier about my decision to join this company. Working for CorrHealth has, thus far, proven to be more than I had hoped. I have been a Corrections Nurse for over a decade, having worked with several other correctional medical companies, and I can honestly say that CorrHealth is like no other company for whom I’ve worked. It is refreshing to work with an organization for whom the bottom line is patient care and “doing right”, regardless of what that costs. Not only does this company truly care for the patient population that we serve, but the leadership fully supports and cares for the employees as well.

In my position, I have the opportunity to work with every site in which CorrHealth provides services and, therefore, have had to opportunity to interact with employees of all levels. To this day, I have yet to come across someone who has had anything negative to say about this company. The leadership team that Todd and Victor have created are like a family. They are warm, welcoming, supportive, and truly concerned about the welfare and happiness of each person who is a part of the organization. The past two months have clearly shown me that the attitude from the leadership team is a direct result of the way Todd and Victor treat everyone in the company… from someone in an executive leadership position all the way to PRN site employees. Never in my career have I received a birthday card and a happy birthday phone call from the CEO of my company, but after only being employed for 3 weeks, that’s exactly what happened.

The respect that individual team members have for Todd, Victor, and Mary is evidenced by some of the comments people have made to me during my visits to various sites… comments like “I love and respect them”, “there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for them”, and “they mean so much to me that I’d take a bullet for them and everyone else on the entire leadership team”.

Because I truly believe in CorrHealth’s mission, I feel blessed to be a part of this team and I am excited to see the great things in store for this company under the leadership of Todd, Victor, and Mary.”

Katie Hunter, LPN/CCHP, Operations and Training Specialist

Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming

“I have been a corrections nurse for the past 10 years with multiple companies being transitioned in different facilities. I have seen some really great companies, but I have also seen some very poor companies. I was fortunate enough to be able to get in with this company upon start-up & I can honestly say I have never seen a greater more caring group of owner/operators than this group. Todd, Victor & Mary are hands down the most devoted people to their industry. They are absolutely dedicated to providing the best employment experience for their employees, the great working relationships between their counties & CorrHealth staff & the best inmate care available.

CorrHealth is a great employer who really cares about their employees. A company that goes above & beyond to remind their employees that they are truly a vital key in the success of the everyday operations of this business. There has never been a time that I wasn’t able to call my supervisor & discuss something with them to where I felt that a situation would be handled appropriately & efficiently. CorrHealth will always back their employees when they are in the right. Just like their motto says, they are always ready to: “DO RIGHT”!”

Cheryl Baca, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

Valencia County Detention Center, New Mexico

“This is an awesome company to be working for that actually cares, and appreciates its employees. Again, thank you all!!!!”

Melissa Jarrett, Registered Nurse (RN) and Regional Manager

Texas

“Many companies boast that they value their employees but with CorrHealth, you feel it every day. I have never felt more supported, important, and empowered to do the best job I can than I have while working for this company! Everyone has a voice and feels part of the overall mission and each of us feels that we have a role in providing great service and the best outcomes in the important work we do. When this company states that its employees are their greatest asset, you can believe them! It’s at the center of everything that we do and is demonstrated from the top down. I have never regretted becoming part of the team. I highly recommend CorrHealth!”

Celestee Cathey, Mental Health Professional (MHP)

FORMER EMPLOYEE
Sandoval and Valencia Counties, New Mexico

“I consider myself lucky to work for CorrHealth as a Mental Health Professional. I have every confidence that the “decision makers” have an acute understanding and support for providing mental health services, even in a situation where resources can be scarce. I enjoy working with a team of people, including CorrHealth’s ownership and upper management, who have an open-door policy and are truly committed to teamwork and considering the ideas of others.”

Mandy Wooley, Administrative Assistant

FORMER EMPL0YEE
Jefferson County Correctional Facility, Texas

“I really appreciate your bringing Kim in to meet the team here in Jefferson County today. It was nice being able to have the opportunity to put a face with the name of the person that will be handling all the HR business for the company. That is definitely one thing I really love about working for CorrHealth as a company is the personable aspect that the both of you bring to us. It’s nice knowing the owners on a first name basis and having the staff actually form relationships with the both of you. It’s nice having people and the resources you need at your fingertips instead of having to make calls to someone you’ll never meet on the other end of a phone. You are definitely doing a great job at creating a family atmosphere with all the CorrHealth teams and we appreciate all you have done and continue to do for us!”

Kameko Brister, Discharge Planner

FORMER EMPLOYEE
Jefferson County Correctional Facility, Texas

“Every day during the course of my workday; I get stopped by at least one person that I have previously met with for discharge planning. Most of the time it’s so he or she can thank me for actually following through on what we had discussed. It’s during these times that I truly know that working for CorrHealth is the RIGHT decision for me. I get to “pay it forward” everyday.”

Mae Torres, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

FORMER EMPLOYEE

“Working for CorrHealth has been an amazing adjustment for my career. I feel supported by my employers and I am pleased with everything this company has to offer.

A Letter Received by Michael R, on 2020,

a Former Inmate in Comal County, Texas

“Nurse Name does her job very well, and by the book. She displays professionalism every day and treats everybody with respect, all while wearing a smile, even on her 5th shift of a 60-hour work week.

I am thankful to have nurses working in the jail like Nurse Name. When I need medical care, I know and trust that Nurse Name will do a great job.”
