Correct Care Solutions is a healthcare company based in Nashville, Tennessee, U.S..[1] The company was founded in 2003[1] by Jerry Boyle.[2] It is co-owned by private equity firms Audax Group and Frazier Healthcare Partners.[3] It provides healthcare services to US prisons, including immigrant-only prisons run by the GEO Group.[4] It operates the Florida Civil Commitment Center, in Arcadia, Florida.

On May 16, 2017, Texas Democratic state Senator Carlos Uresti was indicted by a federal grand jury in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas for conspiracy to commit bribery and conspiracy to commit money laundering.[5] Uersti is alleged to have originally taken money from Physicians Network Associates (PNA), which was awarded a contract for medical services at the GEO Group operated, Reeves County Detention Complex, near Pecos, Texas and that the scheme continued through PNA's successor companies. The indictment claims acting Reeves County administrator, Judge Jimmy Galindo, conspired With Uresti to approve the medical contract through the county commissioners court in exchange for kickbacks and "promises of future payments." PNA hired Uresti, ostensibly as a "consultant" for "marketing services," but the prosecution claims in fact Uresti became the middleman for bribe money destined for Galindo. PNA was subsequently absorbed by Correctional Healthcare Companies in 2010, which then merged with Correct Care Solutions, in 2014. PNA and its successor corporations continued to pay Uresti $10,000 monthly, starting in September 2006, for the next ten years. Uresti is alleged to have split those bribes with Galindo.[6] The case was scheduled to be tried on January 4, 2018.[7]
