St. Lucie County achieves perfect score on NCCHC accreditation

The St. Lucie team

Congratulations are in order for the St. Lucie County Jail (FL) for receiving a score of 100% on their recent National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) re-accreditation survey. A perfect score is no small feat, and St. Lucie has reached this goal twice in the past six years.

Eric Briscoe, Health Services Administrator (HSA) for the St. Lucie County Jail, summed up his thoughts on this achievement in this way, “It is a pleasure to serve Sheriff Ken Mascara and the County Jail administration. To achieve a 100% survey rating is a testament to the collaboration between the St. Lucie County Jail and Corizon. We are extremely appreciative of the leadership from Major Pat Tighe and Captain William Lawhorn. They have successfully established a culture of collaboration within the institution, where the medical team feels welcome and there is a deliberate effort to aid us in providing comprehensive health care to our population.”

During the exit interview, the NCCHC surveyor commented that it is “abundantly clear that the detainees receive excellent healthcare.” Fantastic work, St. Lucie team!
