Careers at Wexford Health
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.
