Since 1989, NaphCare has been partnering with county jails and Federal prisons to provide the incarcerated population with quality healthcare, delivered with respect and professionalism. This bedrock principal of ours is so important that we built it into our Mission Statement.
Always based in Birmingham, Alabama, NaphCare started as a pharmacy company supplying medications to area jails, landing Lowndes County Correctional Center in Valdosta, GA, as our first client. Within a few years, we started up a dialysis division and began providing on-site dialysis services for facilities in Alabama. And soon after, in 1996, we were awarded our first contract to completely manage the medical needs for the 250 inmates at Marshall County Correctional Facility in Guntersville, AL.
NaphCare founder and still CEO Jim McLane has been navigating our expansion ever since, steadily growing his company into a respected industry leader with a nationwide footprint. Today, we provide correctional healthcare services to 53 county/city jails and federal prisons totaling 80,000 inmates and we have dialysis units operational in 13 states. Because we know that every facility is unique, we tailor our services to meet each of our client’s specific needs.
Looking forward, our objective is to continue on a steady path of growth by partnering with medium and large jails who understand and support our Proactive Care Model. Pioneered by NaphCare, this is a new way of thinking about how to deliver care in a correctional setting, where an inmate’s medical and mental health needs are identified on day one, without delay, so that appropriate care can be planned and administered, immediately. We believe that this proactive, preventive approach is the only way to efficiently manage care inside a jail or prison.
