Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility (CRCF) recently received the distinct honor of being named by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) as its 2012 “Facility of the Year”. This prestigious award is provided annually to just one Correctional Facility in the United States; the recipient facility is selected based on on-site audits conducted by NCCHC personnel. The award was graciously accepted by the Vermont Department of Corrections (VT DOC) and its Healthcare vendor Correct Care Solutions (CCS) at the NCCHC national conference in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Per the NCCHC website,“Overall, the team that selected CRCF as Facility of the Year was impressed with how well staff consistently demonstrated excellence in health services delivery, correctional health care professionalism and a commitment to mothers and their children.” ncchc.org
NCCHC accreditation is achieved by approximately 500 facilities across the country; all of the VT DOC facilities successfully renewed their accreditations in 2012. To be singled out for this award, amongst all other accredited facilities, is a strong testament to the commitment the State of Vermont places on patient care within their DOC facilities.
Correct Care Solutions is proud of its strong partnership with the Vermont DOC and thrilled to play a part in the success of the programs within the Vermont facilities. “The recognition of receiving accreditation for all VT facilities as well as this wonderful award is a direct reflection on the dedicated CCS staff working throughout the state of Vermont,” said David Budlong, CCS Regional Manager for Vermont.
Jerry Boyle, President of CCS, added; “This award is a direct result of the vision and programs instituted by the VT DOC; it demonstrates both their dedication to the individuals housed within their facilities and the quality of the staff, from CCS and the VT DOC, that work daily to improve the lives of VT DOC facility residents.”
