Wellpath is the premier provider of localized, high-quality, compassionate care to vulnerable patients in challenging clinical environments. We deliver medical and behavioral healthcare through a family of local and state providers in correctional facilities, inpatient and residential treatment facilities, forensic treatment facilities and civil commitment centers. Wellpath employs nearly 15,000 professionals at 550 facilities in 36 states across America and Australia, and cares for more than 300,000 patients each day.
Our first division services local jails and other detention centers, a second provides care to state and federal prisons, while a third operates inpatient and residential treatment facilities. All three share a common goal: to provide high-quality, compassionate medical and behavioral health services to those who need it most.
County Jails and Other
