NYC Health + Hospitals/Correctional Health Services operates one of the largest correctional health care systems in the nation, with over 43,000 annual admissions in jails across the city. Correctional Health Services also serves as an essential partner in New York City’s criminal justice reform efforts.
Correctional Health Services became a division of NYC Health + Hospitals in August 2015. Since the transition, Correctional Health Services has leveraged the resources of the nation’s largest public health care system and changed the culture of service delivery in the jails.
