Essex County Juvenile Detention Center achieves 100%

Essex County Juvenile Detention Center achieves 100%

Essex County Juvenile Detention Center Medical and Mental Health Team

In late May, the NCCHC was on-site at Essex County Juvenile Detention Center (NJ), a Corizon partner, to conduct its review for continued accreditation. We are extremely happy and proud to report that the facility achieved 100% compliance with all 39 essential standards, as well as all 31 important standards. This marks the second consecutive re-accreditation at 100% compliance.

The lead NCCHC surveyor commented on the excellent relationship between the medical and custody staff, and she even came back to attend the prom for those juvenile detention residents graduating high school (something the site has hosted for the past six years).  She also commended the entire facility staff for their professional conduct, assistance and candor during the inspection.

The NCCHC Accreditation Committee officially awarded Essex County on June 28, 2013. Congratulations to HSA, Sandra James, and the entire Corizon team for their hard work and continued success in achieving NCCHC accreditation!
