what we do

Singularly focused on providing comprehensive, high-quality health care services to county jails, prisons, and juvenile detention centers throughout the United States with several decades of success in the industry. Dedicated solely to correctional health care, our company is designed for our clients, advocates for our patients, and understands our most important resource is our health care team members. We are a proven leader in correctional health care, continuously improving standards of care through evidence-based best practice in all areas to foster positive patient outcomes.

PrimeCare Medical provides qualified medical professionals that are trained and experienced in correctional health care, and who are further supported by equally qualified mid-level practitioners. These professionals are compromised of doctors, dentists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants that oversee all aspects of our correctional health care contracts.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to treat substance use disorder (SUD), sustain recovery, prevent overdose, and reduce cost. Research shows that MAT is clinically effective.  This treatment approach improves patient survival, increases retention in treatment, and decreases illicit opioid use and other criminal activity among people with SUDs.

The backbone of a health care delivery system is comprised of licensed, competent nurses, both registered and practical. Our nursing staff is trained on and guided by established policies and procedures patterned after those of the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC). On-site management is provided by a Health Services Administrator who in turn is further supported by a dedicated regional management staff.

Backed by a company at the forefront of correctional health care, PrimeCare Medical provides an array of services. This includes legal consultation, development and evaluation of policies and procedures in compliance with NCCHA standards, staff training, education development, risk management and complex case review.

PrimeCare Medical provides psychiatrists, psychologists, and behavioral health professionals who specialize in psychiatric patient care, crisis management, suicide prevention, and collaborate with local judicial systems. These services are augmented by efficient use of telemedicine when appropriate.
