Wellpath was born out of the joining of two great companies — Correct Care Solutions and Correctional Medical Group Companies. These two organizations recognized the importance of putting patients first and providing high-quality care to an often overlooked population.
We believe in transforming public health by delivering hope and healing to those who need it most. We treat our patients with the dignity and compassion they deserve, because we care about them as human beings.
We also care about the heartbeat of our company — our amazing doctors, nurses, mental health providers and other clinical staff members who answer the call to help the underserved each and every day. And we value the relationships we have with our client partners because they join us in our team effort to provide the finest healthcare available.
We are Wellpath. We are the right people, striving to do the right thing. And we will continue to create healthier communities — wherever we grow, wherever we go. One patient at a time.
As the result of two great companies joining together, Wellpath would not be the organization it is today without the efforts of the two visionaries who founded Correct Care Solutions and Correctional Medical Group Companies.
Starting as a corrections officer, Jerry Boyle steadily rose up the ranks of Massachusetts Department of Correction for the first 15 years of his career. With a desire to provide the best, high-touch, service-oriented, quality care, he founded Correct Care Solutions in 2003. Jerry wanted the company to be one that employees were proud to work for and clients wanted to do business with, as well as an organization that truly believed in its mission to serve a vulnerable, often overlooked population. Under his guidance, CCS grew from one state correctional contract to a premier provider of public health services to a range of governmental agencies, including state mental health, forensic health, prisons, jails and juvenile detention facilities. His effect on the companies is still felt today, as we have adopted his management philosophy as our company’s values – the 5 Hs being Humility, Honesty, Hunger, Hard Work and Humor.
In the early 80s, Taylor Fithian was working in public health. And he noticed that the local jail in Monterey, California sent every inmate with health problems to the emergency room. This led to poor patient care, overloaded ER professionals, and mounting cost and risk to the county. His solution? Bring specialized correctional healthcare into the jail, which would improve care and reduce cost and risk. So together with his partners, he formed the company that would grow to eventually become Correctional Medical Group Companies. From the beginning, Taylor set the bar high and encouraged every employee to “Always Do the Right Thing.” With every patient in every facility, we plan to follow in his footsteps and add to the company’s legacy.
