As you may know by now, Santa Rosa County Jail recently announced its intention to award the Medical Health Care Management and Mental Health Care Management contract for the Santa Rosa County Jail to CCS/CMGC, Wellpath.  As President, I want you to know that we are interested in retaining all qualified and credentialed employees for appropriate positions within the contract staffing plan. 

I recognize that while some employees may be excited about the news, others may be apprehensive and anxious.  In an attempt to alleviate some of your concerns, members of the Management team will be on-site this week to answer any future team member’s questions.  Meeting times have been scheduled so that you have the ability to attend a session before or after your shift.  These information sessions will last approximately 20-30 minutes and will be held at the Santa Rosa County Jail.  Session times listed below:

Friday, December 21, 2018 - 9:00am-2:00pm

Zela Guirola, Director of Business Development, Bill Kissel, Senior Regional Vice President, Ronda Hinson, Director of Operations and Patricia Rice, Employee Relations Director will provide a brief overview of CCS/CMGC,Wellpath and answer any questions that you may have.   

We will also be scheduling employee screenings for any staff members interested in scheduling an eligibility meeting for continued employment.  If any employee that is interested in employment with CCS/CMGC, Wellpath is not available on either of these dates other accommodations will be made on an individual basis or if you would like to go ahead and complete your profile, you can do so by clicking here.  If you would like additional information, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page by clicking here.

Following the information screenings, we will be back for our New Staff Orientation.    We will be at Santa Rosa County Jail on January 22, 23, and 24, 2019.     More information and sign-up sheets to follow.
