Program Overview

CHP’s customized healthcare programs support medically appropriate, cost-effective care inside the correctional facility and within the community.

Many clients appreciate our collaborative approach and understanding of the correctional environment, backed with solid clinical and operational expertise.

Clinical Expertise

CHP’s clinical program follows NCCHC and ACA standards of correctional care. Our healthcare services make careful use of taxpayer dollars, meet the community standard of care and reduce inmate lawsuits for insufficient care or deliberate indifference.

Client Collaboration

We stand true to our company name Correctional Health Partners. We take great pride in our ability to listen to our customers to understand and address their unique needs and objectives. We promote open and honest communication, and work collaboratively to solve problems and improve outcomes.

“What was promised has come to fruition. I am able to trust medical issues in my facility to our Medical Team. CHP is quality driven and completely devoted to a working partnership. Under CHP, inmate medical grievances have decreased, outside medical costs have gone way down, while quality of services and response to medical needs have skyrocketed.”
