While running his family drug store, Dewberry Drug Co., and serving as Chief Pharmacist at Cooper Green Mercy Hospital, James McLane began providing pharmaceuticals to county jails. In 1989, McLane founded Correctional Pharmacy Systems, Inc., to provide pharmaceutical services exclusively to correctional facilities.
NaphCare becomes one of the first providers to offer dialysis within a jail, establishing our Correctional Dialysis division.
McLane sold his family drug store to focus all of his resources on correctional healthcare, changing the company name from Correctional Pharmacy Systems to National Prison Healthcare, now known as NaphCare.
NaphCare expands to offer third-party administrative (TPA) services to the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), ultimately becoming the largest TPA provider for the BOP with one of the longest-running partnerships.
Recognizing the need for a corrections-specific electronic health record (EHR), NaphCare designs and launches TechCare® EHR and Operating System.
NaphCare pioneers the Proactive Care Model – introducing preventative, proactive patient care to identify medical and mental health concerns during intake for early treatment intervention.
NaphCare opens a regional office in Las Vegas, Nevada, to support the company’s expansion across the country.
The STATCare team is established – a centralized team of Nurse Practitioners available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via telehealth to support onsite clinicians.
NaphCare celebrates 30 years as an industry leader in correctional healthcare.
Brad McLane steps into the role of CEO, succeeding his father, owner and founder of NaphCare, Jim McLane. NaphCare remains a family-owned company committed to making a positive impact in local communities.
