Ronald Nelson, Correctional Officer (CO) III at Arizona State Prison Complex-Winslow’s Coronado Unit, expressed his gratitude for the collaborative nature of the partnership between Corizon Health medical and mental health staff, and site security staff in a recent letter. His thankfulness came about as a result of a recent incident involving an inmate who appeared to be suffering from “a severe mental health issue.” As a result, the inmate had to be restrained, placed on a gurney and taken to the medical unit.

When CO Nelson arrived at medical with the inmate, he observed “one of the best examples of teamwork I have ever had the privilege of being involved with,” calling special attention to the collaborative spirit that allows medical, mental health and security staff to work as one cohesive unit toward a common goal. Specifically, CO Nelson names Health Services Administrator (HSA) Dennis Randles, Scheduler Vicki-Ann Johnston and Medical Records Supervisor Terry Vicars, stating, “Thank you to all of the staff involved, but specifically to the medical unit staff. I was impressed and amazed. I am truly thankful for being a part of the Winslow team.”
