About Wexford Health Sources INC
Wexford Health Sources INC specializes in correctional medicine. 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.
