We are a public healthcare company caring for under-served patients in correctional settings, psychiatric hospitals and residential treatment facilities. Our journey begins with a belief in compassionate care and the way to succeed is by helping our people grow and succeed in their careers.
First things first, is it safe?
Working in corrections or psychiatric environments are as secure as any public hospital setting. For one, you’re never alone with a patient — ever!
Our environments are tightly controlled and secure, unlike an emergency room where there's little or no knowledge of a patient's state of mind. But that’s not reason alone to join Wellpath. We believe in caring for patients with compassion, respect and dignity just as we’d want if they were a member of our own families. That is what we do and we’re immensely proud of the people who see past stereotypes and care for their patients. They make us all proud. Join us today.
Our nurse jobs in corrections, psychiatric hospitals and other public healthcare environments give you the ability to treat patients who typically go without access to health care. For patients that reside in a correctional or psychiatric hospital environment, the care you provide may be the only friendly, compassionate and non-judgmental interaction they encounter. You’ll find that our patients are incredibly appreciative of your work and you can take pride in the care you provide. Our nursing jobs also allow you to spend less time on documentation and paperwork than in most other healthcare environments, and more time to focus on doing what is right for the patient.
Gain responsive support and feedback
In addition to an autonomous workplace, you also gain supportive relationships with Clinical Support, Medical Directors and Providers. Whether you need help caring for a patient, treatment feedback or access to professional development, you can count on your team members at Wellpath.
Our nurses bring knowledge and skills from areas such as correctional care, ambulatory care, emergency room, acute care, chronic care, pediatrics, infirmary care, the military and more. You will have autonomy when caring for patients and you can use your strong assessment skills to quickly identify risk factors and provide quality care. When you do need help or guidance, an experienced professional will be there to support you.

Caring for patients with dignity is our work and that spirit doesn't stop when a shift ends. We're an active part of all our communities, volunteering, giving back and doing good. Many of our correctional patients will return to our communities and how we cared for them impacts their return and help them become better members of our communities. It's in all our best interests to do a little more.
