Shortly, Gov. Kay Ivey, along with key advisers, will determine what health service provider can best address the court order mandates to improve health care in Alabama’s correctional facilities.
Alabama officials who are considering turning over state prison health care to Wexford Health Services should take time to review the firm’s conduct since taking over Indiana’s contract earlier this year.
There are indications that Wexford is over-promising and under-delivering throughout the country. As reported by Alabama Political Reporter last month, Wexford has failed to deliver on its obligation in Illinois, where it vowed to help that state emerge from federal court supervision.
