Coxsackie Regional Medical Unit announces first quarter news

Coxsackie Regional Medical Unit announces first quarter newsIt’s been a quarter full of good news at the Coxsackie Regional Medical Unit (CRMU). Corizon Health’s contract to provide comprehensive medical services recently was renewed for an additional five years. Health Services Administrator Cindy Loucks praised her team for their contributions that helped ensure we will be continuing as provider for this long-running contract in the state of New York.

Also, this quarter, Corizon Health’s CRMU director of nursing, along with Hospice Case Manager Kathleen Allan, joined with our client partners to recognize the graduates of the facility’s hospice training program. The hospice program, developed in 1998, serves to recognize and develop inmate hospice aides. Inmates from the general population who wish to give back to their peers attend a 40-hour volunteer training program in which they learn how to provide psychological support to patients admitted to the CRMU hospice program. The graduates were awarded certificates acknowledging their contributions.

Finally, last month, Corizon regional leaders hosted a luncheon to officially present the Corizon Health 2016 Clinical Excellence Award to CRMU. The award was announced at the Leadership Meeting held in Franklin, Tennessee earlier this year. At the same luncheon, site leaders also recognized 20-year veterans of the company with a plaque and special gift.
