  • MEDIKO established trust and commitment from the very start. Some of the more noticeable changes that took place that were indicated in the proposal, was providing us with a higher level and quantity of staff. MEDIKO’s staffing matric proved to be right for our facility….it was a change that has strengthened our program. These changes, along with other components of MEDIKO’s program, helps us limit liability risks, better meet our inmates’ needs and reduce costs. We have a true partnership with MEDIKO.

  • The Southwest Virginia Regional Jail Authority is extremely fortunate to have a medical contractor of the caliber of MEDIKO, PC. As Southwest Virginia Regional Jail’s daily population nears one thousand eight hundred, the highest level of medical and psychiatric care is consistently maintained and is proven by the small amount of inmate grievances and lawsuits. I do not recall any since we opened in 2005 that have been founded. MEDIKO, PC has become a partner to the administration of the jails integrating medical, security and cost utilization procedures imperative to the success of the facilities.
