PRESS RELEASE

Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp is pleased to announce the institution of a new healthcare program at the Christian County Correctional Center. This program is designed to raise the standard of inmate care while containing costs, despite an economy where expenses keep increasing. "We recognized a need that had to be addressed and worked diligently with the County Board to resolve it" said Sheriff Kettelkamp.

The comprehensive program, which lowers healthcare costs at the correctional center, has been implemented in more than 200 jails throughout the Midwest and South. It focus on improving the quality of care delivered in the correctional setting, as well as enhancing the overall health of detainees through the use of appropriate medications and counseling. The program provides the Christian County Correctional Center with physician, nursing and mental health services, as well as a number of other services to benefit medical operations.

The new provider, Advanced Correctional Healthcare (ACH), provides correctional healthcare services in 17 states. ACH started services at the Christian County Correctional center on June 4th.
