Correctional Medical Associates, Inc.

Comprehensive, cost effective services and a track record of excellence.

When a correctional facility's health care program has achieved accreditation, it is certified by national governing bodies as having demonstrated a high level of management and control. Our work with the Fulton County Jail has earned it accreditation from two national accrediting organizations, the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) and the American Correctional Association (ACA).

Accreditation Standards

NCCHC Standards for Health Services are widely recognized and accepted by the medical profession, the correctional industry and the courts as benchmark standards for measuring a correctional facility's health services system. Developed by experts in medicine, public health, law and corrections, separate standards exist for health care delivery in jails, prisons, and juvenile detention and confinement facilities. Areas covered by NCCHC standards include:

  • Facility governance and administration

  • Personnel and training
  • Health care services support
  • Inmate care and treatment
  • Health promotion and disease prevention
  • Special inmate needs and services
