Public Health Model

The Hampden County Correctional Center in Ludlow, Massachusetts has implemented an award-winning Public Health ModelĀ for Correctional Health Care that provides a spectrum of comprehensive health and mental health services to inmates, linking them to the community from which they came and to which they return. This successful and innovative system builds collaborations between correctional health and public health, reducing costs by contracting with non-profit providers in the community.
