By policy, NCCHC does not release such lists, nor can it respond to inquiries as to whether a given facility is accredited. Please contact facilities directly for that information.

NCCHC does not accredit any kind of company (such as health care contractors, electronic health records vendors or pharmacies), states or agencies. Rather, NCCHC accredits individual correctional facilities for compliance with the relevant Standards for Health Services. The accreditation is awarded to the facility itself for its established system of health care delivery and demonstrated compliance with the requirements of the standards.
