Detention Centers

Detention Center Comprehensive Health Services provides Medical and Mental health care to youth placed in Florida's 21 Juvenile Detention Centers. Many of the youth entering Juvenile Detention have chronic medical conditions and are experiencing mental health or substance abuse issues. Some have not accessed proper medical care prior to entering the detention center. Camelot is responsible for ensuring that these youth receive the same degree of care that they would, had they been out in the community.

Camelot’s statewide, comprehensive medical team consists of a force of 125+ medical doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, APRN’s and medical records clerks, delivering medical care in each of the twenty-one Department of Juvenile Justice’s Regional Juvenile Detention Centers in Florida.  Through this program we are able to:

(1) Ensure health care services provided in facilities and programs are rendered in accordance with state and federal health care regulations and rules, and professional standards of care.  

(2) Promote the delivery of quality health care services for delinquent youth under department care and custody that ensures the right to the same degree of medical care as they would receive in the community.

(3) Assist in developing and consistently implementing necessary and appropriate health care services in department facilities and programs; and

(4) Establishing health care services within the continuum of services, which promotes adolescent health, well-being and development.
