Dr. Norman R. Johnson and Brenda J. Johnson established Advanced Correctional Healthcare (ACH) in 2002 in order to make the lives of sheriffs and jailers easier. Through reputation and referral, ACH’s clientele quickly grew. In 2007, 2012, and 2013, ACH was listed as one of INC. 5000’s fastest growing healthcare companies. We attribute this honor to our commitment to our clients; while growth is important, we have always prioritized the standard of care.
We are currently proud to serve more than 245 clients across 17 states, impacting the lives of more than 30,000 patients. ACH is responsible for operating healthcare teams in a variety of correctional settings, including county jails, juvenile detention centers, mental health units, city jails for police departments, work release centers, and drug rehabilitation centers such as methadone clinics. To this day, ACH is a Midwest, family company, privately owned and managed by Dr. and Mrs. Johnson.
Our unique approach to inmate medical services is to identify the needs, strengths, and weaknesses of each facility, then develop a customized program using the strengths of both the facility and ACH to provide the highest quality of inmate healthcare possible. Strong client partnerships and open communication are key to a successful program. Solid working relationships with community-based service providers, such as the local hospital, are also critical to working together as a partner in the delivery of healthcare.
Because of our detailed strategic approach, extensive medical experience, economic attitudes, and exceptional outcome statistics, ACH is recognized as a leader in the correctional healthcare field. Unlike other vendors, our company is owned and managed by medical professionals who have worked together for as many as 30 consecutive years. – less
