The Office of Health Services provides comprehensive health care services for inmates. The links available on this page offer additional information about the clinical and administrative programs.

The Office of Health Services fully supports the Department's Re-Entry initiatives by providing prompt and effective care while working collaboratively to plan for the continuity of care to address the physical and mental health needs of offenders transitioning into the community. Mental illness and health issues can pose a significant risk to a successful re-entry, and OHS seeks to assist offenders in overcoming these barriers.
