Centurion Health is dedicated to providing high-quality healthcare to our patients that meets widely recognized high standards of quality and efficiency. We commit to an ongoing pursuit of excellence by developing and adhering to policies that support national correctional health care standards and achieving or maintaining various national and state accreditations.
Centurion’s State of Accreditation Readiness (SOAR) program ensures our programs and teams sustain high levels of performance through regular educational sessions, mock audits, and other resources for our local teams. This program helps ensure that adherence to high standards is a constant practice.
URAC, formerly known as the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission, is an independent, nonprofit organization that develops standards with the help of nationwide experts in healthcare, including providers, insurers, healthcare organizations and public interest groups. Centurion’s telehealth services are URAC certified.
The National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) is the first and only national accrediting body dedicated exclusively to health care in the nation’s jails, prisons, and juvenile facilities. Accreditation is based on compliance with the NCCHC Standards, widely recognized as the benchmark for ensuring access to quality correctional health care services and the most rigorous standards available. Centurion assists our partner agencies in achieving and maintaining accreditation. Centurion currently provides care in nearly 80 facilities that are NCCHC accredited.
Centurion provides care in over 115 facilities accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). The ACA provides a system of verification that correctional facilities comply with national standards defined and published by the 150-year old organization. These standards are based on valid, reliable research and exemplary correctional practice that encompasses healthcare services as well as all aspects of operations of correctional facilities.
