The Monroe County Youth Center contracts with a correctional healthcare company to provide a full continuum of medical services. Our licensed nurse is on-site 25 hours per week and on-call medical consultation is available 24 hours a day. Our licensed physician is on site once a week to see youth, review medical charts and provide oversight of the medical program. Youth are provided a medical exam and assessment within 72 hours of arrival in the program. If youth are prescribed medication, they will continue to receive their medication during their stay.
Additional medical services such as psychiatric medication reviews, dental services and emergency services are provided by other contracted medical providers on an as-needed basis.
