The team at Correctional HealthCare Consultants has more than 35 years of management experience in correctional facilities and are experts in the National Commission on Correctional Health Care and the American Correctional Association accreditation. Bringing both the security and healthcare aspects together, we are available to assist correctional medical and security programs with their operational and accreditation needs. We have worked with statewide Departments of Correction as well as private vendors.

When a private healthcare vendor is used, Correctional HealthCare Consultants will audit their contract compliance and quality of care performance. Correctional HealthCare Consultants has experience with legal cases involving medical care and security issues in the correctional environment. We will prepare an opinion regarding alleged nursing malpractice and correctional administrative failures after an in-depth medical record and facility record review. If the case progresses to trial, Correctional HealthCare Consultants’ staff will testify as an expert witness.
