Department of Corrections Institutes Community-Oriented Healthcare for Inmates
DC Department of Corrections
DC Department of Corrections announced that on October 1, 2006, the Department entered in partnership with Unity Health Care to institute a model of community-oriented healthcare services for individuals in District’s detention facilities. This model of healthcare was established in Hampden County, MA in 1992. The model views inmates as temporarily displaced members of the community and uses community health centers as a link to care both in-and-out of jail.
