Correct Care provides efficient, evidence-based health services and is committed to providing transparency and accountability to our partner agencies.
Correct Care Australasia was first registered in 1997 as Pacific Shores Healthcare (PSH), a subsidiary of Australasian Correctional Management (ACM) and commenced healthcare delivery at nine public prisons in Victoria on 1 January 1998. In 2004 ACM became known as GEO Australia Pty Ltd. PSH continued unchanged until 2011 when it underwent a name change, resulting from a major corporate restructure and change to ‘GEO Care’.
Correct Care Solutions (CCS) acquired GEO Care in 2014, including its Australian operations. GEO Care Australia then became a part of a division of CCS known as Correct Care Recovery Solutions (CCRS). In January 2015, GEO Care Australia changed its name to Correct Care Australasia to reflect this change in ownership.
Our Organisation Today

We specialise in providing health services in restrictive environments and strive to provide person-centred care that is sensitive to cultural differences. A range of primary health and mental health services are offered on site, as well as referrals to secondary and tertiary care as appropriate.

Correct Care Australasia is a forward-focused organisation, continually looking for new opportunities to grow our business and provide high quality health services.
In February 2019 Correct Care looks forward to adding youth justice to its existing services in Victoria by providing primary health services to Victoria’s two youth justice precincts: Malmsbury Youth Justice Precinct and Parkville Youth Justice Precinct.
