NaphCare is selected by the Lewis County (WA) Sheriff’s Office to Provide Healthcare Management for County Inmates

BIRMINGHAM, AL — NaphCare, Inc., an independent partner to correctional facilities nationwide for innovative healthcare management and technology solutions, was recently selected by the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office to provide comprehensive medical care to the inmates housed at the Lewis County Jail located in Chehalis, Washington, located between Portland and Seattle.

The Sheriff has the obligation to care for persons held in County custody, overseeing a population of just over 200 inmates housing both male and female detainees. NaphCare has assumed responsibility for the management of all facets of medical, dental, and emergency care for the facility. In addition, NaphCare will provide off-site hospital/physician network development, medical scheduling, and a web-based medical records system to better manage inmate healthcare and costs.

“NaphCare is excited about expanding our Washington footprint with this new partnership with Lewis County and we are committed to delivering the highest quality healthcare services possible,” said Jack Donahue, NaphCare’s Senior Vice President, Western States. “Our goal is to exceed the expectations of the Sheriff, and we look forward to a long term arrangement that delivers the right care, in the right setting, every time.”

When reached for comment, Sheriff Robert Snaza stated, “The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office is looking forward to this new partnership with NaphCare. With NaphCare, our jail will have 24-hour inmate medical health care to best serve the inmates we house and our dedicated correctional staff.”
