Our Divisions

One of our divisions services local jails and other detention centers, another provides care to state and federal prisons, while a third operates state psychiatric hospitals. All three share a common goal: to provide high-quality, compassionate medical and behavioral health services to those who need it most.

With our dedicated doctors, nurses, mental health providers and other clinical staff working in 394 local detention facilities around the country, Wellpath is responsible for the healthcare needs of more than 130,000 patients. Wellpath provides our local government partners with a staffed managed care model that implements comprehensive, accredited medical and behavioral healthcare programs and services that include offsite hospital contracting and dental.
