Through a series of cost-cutting measures, the Florida Department of Corrections reduced its expenditures by $24 million from the previous fiscal year while improving the quality of its inmate health care.

“Secretary McNeil has allowed us to focus on providing prompt acute care and proper chronic care to inmates in our custody, and this preventive, evidence-based approach has yielded tremendous cost efficiencies.”
