RICHMOND, Va. – The Virginia Department of Corrections is switching health care providers after its old service ended its contract, according to officials.

Corizon Health, Inc., the VADOC’s previous provider since May 2013, broke its contract June 2 and gave the department 120 days to find a new company, officials said.
