Congratulations Maricopa County Correctional Health Services! The National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC), upon the recommendation of its Accreditation Committee, has selected the Maricopa CountyJail System to receive this year’s NCCHC R. Scott Chavez Facility of the Year Award. This award is presented each year to only one facility selected from among the 500 jails, prisons, and juvenile confinement facilities that participate in NCCHC’s nationwide accreditation program.

Maricopa County Correctional Health Services (CHS) provides medically necessary, integrated healthcare to individuals housed in the Maricopa County Jails. Correctional health care is complex and challenging. We serve a population which often has had little or no access to health care. Many individuals come to us in need of care for chronic physical and mental health conditions. Some have not seen a dentist for years, if ever. While waiting to move through the judicial system, they are housed in one of six jails operated by another department. Arresting agencies include Maricopa County, DPS, multiple cities and municipalities. Most of the population in the jails is pre-trial; some are sentenced for one year or less. Every person housed in the Maricopa County jails is our patient.
