Juvenile Justice Intervention Center

In 2019, Children's Hospital partnered with the Juvenile Justice Intervention Center (JJIC), a 76-bed detention center that provides safe and secure pre-trial detention to youths charged with comitting a delinquent offense. All detained youths receive medical treatment and mental health support through two dedicated medical exam rooms and one behavioral health clinic.

Children's provides on-site behavioral health and medical coverage, external referral management and around-the-clock call coverage. Facilities, supplies and security staff are provided by JJIC.

As of summer 2020, Children's Hospital providers have completed nearly 3,000 visits to patients at the Juvenile Justice Intervention Center.
