ACH operates healthcare teams in a variety of correctional settings, including county jails, juvenile detention centers, mental health units, work release centers, and drug rehabilitation centers while leading with a higher standard of care for an underserved population.
How to Get Hired
We asked Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
ACH seeks employees that are professional (with patients, clients, and staff), have a high degree of integrity, are problem solvers and employees who are committed to the organization's purpose. Our employees are people who are empowered to do the right thing, driven by personal values that match the organization's and an understanding that patients in correctional facilities are someone's child, sibling, spouse, or parent. Our employees are not there to judge or make their patients’ lives harder. Our employees are there to make the management of our patients' medical and mental health concerns easier.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
A prospective employee can attract our positive attention by being themselves in the interview process. We look for individuals who not only have the appropriate skills but who are a good fit for the culture of the facility for which they apply. If an applicant misrepresents themselves in an interview, they may choose to leave a position they are unhappy with due to a culture that was not the right fit for them. Our interview process is set up to place professional people into roles in which they will succeed.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Generally, positions with our new and existing clients include nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, and mental health professionals. As our clientele continues to grow, we are committed to hiring the best clinical staff for an individual facility. Having correctional experience is definitely a plus, but not a requirement. Our qualified interviewing team looks for candidates to work both at our off site facilities and in our corporate office that demonstrate our core values.
