You will make a significant difference in the lives of your patients.
The steadily growing field of correctional health care is an often overlooked area of public health. Providing clinical services to adults and juveniles in a detention center, jail, or prison offers many opportunities not found in private practice.
You will make a significant difference in the lives of your patients. For many inmates, your care will be their first experience with health education and preventive services.
Correctional health care offers unlimited opportunities. Although inmates have always needed medical treatment, the correctional health care field has, until recently, been a relatively unnoticed part of medical and nursing specialty care. In this industry, you can gain experience, earn recognition, and advance your career with relative ease.
The variety of cases and patients makes correctional health care both stimulating and educational. Correctional health care encompasses a wide variety of medical specialties, including substance abuse, hospice, and behavioral health care. Additionally, due to the country’s aging inmate population and specialized facilities dedicated to juvenile or female offenders, the industry offers opportunities in geriatrics, pediatrics, obstetrics, and gynecology.
Correctional nurses and physicians enjoy a unique level of autonomy. Wexford Health’s correctional health professionals are the clinical decision makers at their institutions, with first-line responsibility for managing their programs and making critical care choices.
A clinical or administrative position with Wexford Health offers a competitive, comprehensive compensation package, as well as opportunities for educational and career advancement and the chance to positively impact a truly needy population.
Because we believe our employees are our most valuable asset, offering a competitive comprehensive compensation package is very important to Wexford Health. We continually monitor the marketplace to ensure that our total compensation/benefit package is competitive with those of other health care employers — both correctional and non-correctional. We work hard to ensure that we provide meaningful benefits that meet the diverse needs of our employee base across the nation.
We list below some of our standard benefits, including our creative Paid Time Off policy, which affords our employees flexibility in how they use their leave time and enables them to better balance career with home and family.
Wexford Health does not sacrifice quality of service in order to save money. Our utilization management and other innovative programs cut costs without causing any negative impact on care or customer service. As our mission statement says, we strive to provide innovative solutions that meet patients’ needs and exceed clients’ expectations.
