(L-R) Dr. Alfred Garcia, Tianca Ashford, Alexandra Schmidt

While attending the National Commission on Correctional Health Care’s (NCCHC) spring conference in Nashville, Tennessee, Dr. Alfred Garcia passed the exam to receive his CCHP-P (Certified Correctional Health Professional-Physician). The CCHP-P credential was designed to “recognize expertise among physicians practicing in the specialized field of correctional health care.” Dr. Garcia serves as Medical Director for Corizon Health at multiple sites in the state of Missouri.

In addition to Dr. Garcia, two Brentwood (TN) Healthcare Support Team members received their CCHP certification. Both Tianca Ashford and Alexandra Schmidt passed their CCHP exam and can now add that credential to their name. Tianca is a Quality and Patient Safety Data Administrator and Alex, also a registered nurse, is a Patient Safety Specialist. Both ladies bring added value to quality and patient safety at Corizon Health, and they provide support and service to our field employees and various levels of leadership.

Congratulations, team members, and thank you for pursuing this certification to signify your leadership, commitment and expertise.
