Community Re-Entry

re-entry consultation

Armor Correctional Health Services has a long track record of developing community re-entry programs and we work closely with our clients to coordinate health care services to maximize access. We integrate release planning into our patient care model throughout the course of incarceration, from the first identification of a patient’s need for continuing medical care right up until release.
