Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is a nationally recognized leader in correctional health care, providing health coverage for more than 32,000 state offenders in West Texas. 

In 1989, TTUHSC began providing health services for offenders housed in Texas Department of Criminal Justice correctional facilities.

Examining a patient

Our high standard of service is evidenced by the fact that all State Correctional facilities that receive health care services from TTUHSC are accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA).

The Texas correctional managed health care program represents a legislatively established  partnership among the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.  The partnership is responsible for providing comprehensive health care services to adult offenders incarcerated in Texas state prisons.
