Addressing Behavioral Health

YesCare addresses behavioral health comprehensively. We provide a full continuum of care, from short-term services to support one’s ability to adjust to incarceration, through certified inpatient psychiatric hospital units and everything in between. Across all levels of care, we believe patients and communities are best served by coordinating with other health disciplines and community partners to ensure whole person care. We also deliver innovative trainings for our custody partners and provide programming aimed at supporting our shared goal of safe and healthy institutions. Whether we are the provider of comprehensive services or solely the behavioral health provider, YesCare takes a holistic approach to patient care.


Ensuring Patient Health and Safety

Over 40 years, YesCare has provided expert medical, dental and behavioral health services to more than 1,000,000 patients at 475 correctional facilities across the country through custom-designed healthcare programs.

YesCare developed a unique Patient Safety program as a standard of excellence for quality, safe patient care in the correctional healthcare setting. Our dedicated clinicians’ recognize that quality care relies on the identification of untreated and underdiagnosed medical and behavioral health issues.
