About Us

NYC Health + Hospitals/Correctional Health Services is one of the nation’s leading correctional health care systems in quality of and innovations to care and access from pre-arraignment through compassionate release. Correctional Health Services is a pivotal partner in New York City’s criminal legal reform efforts, ranging from alternatives to incarceration to support of successful reentry into the community.

In 2016, as a new division of NYC Health + Hospitals, Correctional Health Services became the direct provider of health care in the city’s jails. Since the transition, Correctional Health Services has leveraged the resources of the nation’s largest municipal public health care system and changed the culture of service to individuals in the custody of the city.

If you have questions about the health care in the City’s jails, please call NYC Health + Hospitals/Correctional Health Services at 347-774-7000.
