Marc Richman named chief of correctional healthcare

Department of Correction | Date Posted: Friday, June 12, 2015



Dover – Commissioner Robert Coupe today announced the appointment of Marc Richman, Ph.D., as Chief of the Bureau of Correctional Healthcare Services for the Delaware Department of Correction (DOC). As Bureau Chief, Richman will direct a full-time staff of 14 who manage an annual budget of nearly $60 million and are responsible for ensuring that 400 contract medical personnel deliver healthcare services to 7,000 inmates. He replaces James Welch, who retired from state service last month.

Since 2010, Richman has served as Assistant Director of Community Mental Health and Addiction Services at the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services’ Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health. From 2005 to 2010 he served as Deputy Director of the Division of Child Mental Health Services at the Delaware Department of Children, Youth and their Families. He began his career with the State of Delaware in 1993 as a Child Psychologist.

“Marc has distinguished himself as a healthcare provider and an effective manager through more than 20 years of dedicated service to the State of Delaware,” Coupe said today. “His personal knowledge as a licensed psychologist and his professional experience directing statewide programs and managing large contracts and annual budgets position him well to hit the ground running as our chief of correctional healthcare. Additionally, Marc’s vast understanding of our state’s addiction epidemic and his role in enhancing Delaware’s substance abuse treatment system make him uniquely qualified to implement expanded behavioral health and addiction treatment programs for the DOC.”

Richman holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Gettysburg College, a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Hofstra University, and a Ph.D. from the Hofstra Clinical School of Psychology. He has served as an adjunct faculty member at Wilmington University and Widener University and has held leadership roles on multiple state health care and criminal justice task forces and policy committees.

Richman’s appointment is effective June 28, 2015.
