Liaisons for the Jail
A Clinical Liaison message phone line is available. Members of the public may leave messages about health care concerns of someone currently incarcerated.

That number is 602-876-7110.
This message line is monitored M-F 8am – 5pm. Clinical staff where the patient is housed will receive the information promptly. Also, as noted on the greeting, someone may return the call if additional information is needed.
