Jessica Young, Esq, CCHP

Senior Counsel

<strong>Jessica Young</strong>, Esq., CCHP, Senior Counsel. As one of the nation’s largest correctional healthcare providers, ACH endeavors to make a difficult time in their incarcerated patients’ lives, easier. Due to Jessica’s knowledge and experience with inmate litigation, she has become deeply involved in ACH’s employee and client training programs. As a result, according to our insurance company, ACH continues to have one of the lowest (if not the lowest) patient litigation rates in the correctional healthcare industry. Jessica also serves as ACH’s media contact and strives to change the negative media portrayal of our industry.
