NCCHC Board Welcomes New AJA Liaison, Oscar Aviles

Posted May 15, 2015

The National Commission on Correctional Health Care welcomes Oscar Aviles, CPM, CJM, CCE, CCHPOscar Aviles, to its board of directors. Aviles serves as liaison of the American Jail Association. He replaces Peter Perroncello, MS, CJM, who retired from the board after 11 years of service.

Aviles is the director of the Hudson County (NJ) Department of Corrections, where he oversees all aspects of the Hudson County Correctional Center and Juvenile Detention Center.

“NCCHC is a major proponent of the need to monitor and improve the quality of inmate health care,” says Aviles. “Provision of quality care has been a vital component of the services we provide in Hudson County, and our commitment in this area is clear. As administrator of a major NCCHC-accredited jail, as well as a member of the boards of directors of both the AJA and the New Jersey County Jail Wardens Association, I feel that I bring a wealth of experience that I can further broaden while serving the NCCHC board in its crucial mission.”

Aviles’ appointment took effect April 12 during the NCCHC board meeting.
