Restart the RFP process for Healthcare Services at the D.C. Department of Corrections
This petition made change with 508 supporters!
Last year a contract was awarded to Corizon, a Tennessee-based for-profit company, to supply healthcare services to D.C. Jail. Amid growing concerns over Corizon's ineffectual delivery of healthcare and hundreds of malpractice lawsuits brought against the company, Mayor Gray withdrew the contract submission before the D.C. council could vote on it.
Mayor Bowser is apparently considering submitting that contract for vote again, even amid continuing concerns - see Councilmember Grosso's letter to her about this contract here: http://www.davidgrosso.org/grosso-analysis/2015/3/9/grossos-letter-to-mayor-bowser-regarding-dc-jail-healthcare-contract-process
Please sign this petition in support of his request that she restart the RFP for this contract. Providing D.C. inmates with quality, caring healthcare not only benefits D.C. Inmates, it benefits the entire District of Columbia.
