Indiana juvenile correctional facility achieves successful American Correctional Association audit

Indiana juvenile correctional facility achieves successful American Correctional Association auditCamp Summit Juvenile Correctional Facility in LaPorte, Indiana, has achieved a successful American Correctional Association (ACA) audit. Camp Summit is an Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) medium to high security facility for juvenile males. IDOC has been a Corizon Health client partner since 2005.

Receiving accreditation with ACA helps to improve facility operations through “adherence to clear standards relevant to all areas/operations of the facility.” Those areas include safety, security, order, inmate care, programs, justice and administration. Members of ACA auditing teams are experienced correctional professionals—the average of whom has worked in the field of corrections for more than 18 years. Auditors are also used for monitoring accredited facilities or certified programs for continued compliance.

Corizon Health Vice President Operations for the Indiana Region, Bill Carr, gave kudos to facility Superintendent Cecil K. Davis, citing the “tremendous passion” with which he runs his facility and further states the results of the audit are a “direct reflection of the leadership and services” he provides to the juveniles in his care. Superintendent Davis responded by stating that the Corizon Health team at Camp Summit is an “integral part of a great team.”

We congratulate Superintendent Davis on the results of the ACA audit. It is an honor and a privilege for Corizon Health to be able to provide quality healthcare services to the juvenile offenders at Camp Summit and appreciate the successful partnership we share.
