"In corrections, you get to do something for you and you're also serving your country. It's a service to your community and to your country."

Correctional Health Care with CCA
CCA’s commitment to quality also means providing high-quality health care for inmates. Our facilities feature fully staffed medical clinics that adhere to standardized regulations or are certified by the American Correctional Association, Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and/or the National Commission on Correctional Health Care.
These organizations work to improve the quality of health care provided in jails and prisons by developing and maintaining nationally recognized standards for correctional health care. CCA prides itself on employing physicians and nurses experienced in providing high-quality care specific to inmates’ needs.
Medical staff at CCA facilities are supported by a regional network of medical professionals across the country and are led by a talented team at the company's headquarters. Additionally, CCA facilities utilize a revolutionary computer program that automates medical records, scheduling, medication administration, pill call and pharmacy services; reducing paperwork, filing and wait times.
