Centurion Health Staffing Solutions

Centurion Health succeeds providing direct staffing solutions because of our experience being more than just a ‘typical agency company’. As a leader of correctional healthcare services, many of our contracts in other states have program management and clinical service delivery requirements that far exceed simply placing personnel.

Patient Care is Our Top Priority

We understand and embrace the serious responsibilities inherent to the delivery of clinical services to patients in need of medical services that are often of a life sustaining or urgent nature. We know that prolonged vacancies, in any position, particularly key personnel, can be detrimental to the success of the agencies we serve and the patient populations they serve. As such, we utilize a two-pronged approach to make sure that we continuously have key personnel available for our programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is correctional healthcare?

Correctional healthcare broadly refers to ensuring access to, and the delivery of, a broad array of healthcare services to incarcerated persons in correctional facilities (i.e., prisons, jails).

What services are provided in correctional healthcare?

Incarcerated persons must be afforded access to medical, dental, and mental health services provided by qualified healthcare professionals and services are held to similar standards as healthcare services in the community. Services are typically provided on site in the healthcare clinic areas of correctional facilities by teams of physicians, dental professionals, nurses, mental health professionals, and other healthcare providers across the broad spectrum of healthcare specialties. Services include primary care clinics, chronic care clinics, dental services, urgent care services, psychiatry, psychology, and physical and other rehabilitative therapies, patient education, and more. Patients requiring highly specialized services or hospitalization are transported to hospitals and specialists in the community.

What are the biggest challenges in correctional healthcare?

Incarcerated persons have often had little or no access to healthcare services prior to incarceration and can present with a wide range of complex needs and co-morbid conditions, making their initial contact with healthcare staff a key component to their initial screening and placement within the correctional system. The safety and security protocols of correctional facilities take precedence over all else, which can sometimes interfere with the delivery of healthcare services. However, healthcare professionals working in correctional facilities are viewed as key personnel and vital to the day to day operations of a correctional facility. Some of the biggest challenges in correctional healthcare include managing the complex healthcare needs of a large inmate population, ensuring safety and security, and addressing mental health issues.

How does healthcare in correctional facilities differ from healthcare outside?

Healthcare in correctional facilities goes beyond patient care and is part of a larger effort to rehabilitate incarcerated persons and prepare them for their successful return to the community. Many incarcerated persons have complex medical and/or mental health needs that will persist after their release, making the role of the healthcare professionals key to their long-term success after release.

Over 95% of people presently incarcerated will return to the community. The healthcare and rehabilitative services they receive while incarcerated has a direct impact on their success.

A Wide Array of Solutions

As a leading national provider of comprehensive services to correctional systems, Centurion Health offers a wide array of solutions including chronic disease management, mental health support and facility specific correctional medical services. Together we can work together as a united force for positive change, embracing society’s greatest challenges for a better tomorrow.
