MEnD President, Todd, Leonard, MD, CCHP-P is one of the first professionals in the United States to obtain certification as a Correctional Healthcare Physician from the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare (NCCHC). NCCHC is a national foundation overseeing the correctional healthcare industry, and is widely recognized as the gold standard regarding correctional healthcare policy and standards. Through accreditation and educational programs, NCCHC certification is designed to demonstrate a mastery of national standards for correctional healthcare, as well as the dedicated knowledge and skill sets required for leadership in this complex field. MEnD Correctional Care is proud to recognize our president, Dr. Leonard for his achievements. We also wanted to share how our organization led by his capable hands can provide so many benefits for all parties involved.
National Commission on Correctional Health Care Certification
NCCHC began in the 1970’s and has since become the gold standard for professionals in the field of correctional healthcare. The organization’s mission is to improve the quality of health care in correctional facilities and collaborate with other organizations to provide information, training, and leadership to correctional healthcare organizations, including MEnD. The standards of care developed by the NCCHC are recognized throughout the country and are highly respected. NCCHC also developed a comprehensive training program for professionals in the industry to gain the knowledge and leadership skills needed to make the most impact for the counties and facilities they serve. Dr. Leonard has completed this intense training process, and has now achieved this advanced certification. Since the beginning of MEnD, Dr. Leonard has been passionate about providing a higher level of care that is also cost-effective for his customers. The model Dr. Leonard helped create now serves 31 county facilities in three states and has saved millions of taxpayer’s dollars through this growth. MEnD, led by Dr. Leonard, will continue to work diligently to provide the many benefits each client currently experiences.
