Director Casey Favre

Casey Favre was appointed as the Director of Health Services in April 2018 by Sheriff Ricky Adam as part of Sheriff Adam’s initiative to insource inmate health services and provide greater access to healthcare to the inmate population housed at the facility.

Director Favre began his work in law enforcement in 2000, having experience at many levels to include working as a deputy court clerk in the municipal court, dispatcher and he began his patrol career with the Waveland Police Department in 2002. In August 2004, Director Favre became a deputy sheriff for the Harrison County (MS) Sheriff’s Office where he worked as a patrol deputy, motor carrier inspector, narcotics investigator, special agent assigned to the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and task force officer assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

During his work in law enforcement, Director Favre obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from William Carey College and Master of Science in Nursing from the University of South Alabama, leading to his becoming a nurse practitioner.

Director Favre is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners as a Family Nurse Practitioner and the American Nurses Credentialing Center as an Adult Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, providing him a solid skill set to work in emergency department, inpatient and primary care settings.

Director Favre has worked in a variety of capacities of healthcare outside of his clinical roles, in that he was a Director of Health Services for Hancock Medical Center. He has applied his prior work in law enforcement to his work in providing inmate health care services at the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office. His clinical and managerial areas of focus include community health of the inmate population, the psychological underpinnings of addiction and rehabilitation and correctional healthcare in a cost-contained yet efficient manner.

The Medical Division is supported by licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and an administrative team to ensure that inmates are provided healthcare consistent with the Standards for Health Services in Jails by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care.
