History

 

In July 1961 the Republican Hospital of the Correctional Department under the Ministry of Interior was established as a separate institution under the name of „Centralnaja bolnica upravlenija mest zakliučenija“.

The Minister of Interior of LSSR by his the Order No 040 of 28 April 1970 established the name of the institution to be used in classified documents was the Republican Hospital of the Correctional Department and OČ-12/11 in non-classified ones.

Before restoration of independence the information on health problems of detainees and inmates was an integral part of the management pyramid of the Ministry of Interior of LSSR, while the information related to the health status of the above mentioned persons was classified as a secret before 1989. Since 1990 the departamental regulation of healthcare services was transferred to a governmental one, i. e. management and organization of healthcare services for detainees and inmates were incorporated into the national legislation regulating public healthcare services.

The Order No 619 of the Minister of Interior of the Republic of Lithuania of 27 October 1992 established the coded names of the institution to be revealed and the institution OČ-12/11 was renamed Republican Hospital of the Correctional Department under the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Lithuania.

By the Resolution No 963 of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania of 24 August 2000 the penitentiary system was transferred from the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Interior to the Ministry of Justice, thereby the Correctional Department regained the name of the Prison Department under the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania.

Since 1 September 2000 the official name of the former Republican Hospital is Central Prison Hospital.

Pursuant to the Order No 1R-231 of the Minister of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania On Reorganization of Central Prison Hospital and Pravieniskes Medical Treatment – Correction House and Reorganization of Pravieniskes Correction House No 1, Pravieniskes Correction House – Open Colony No 2 and Pravieniskes Correction House No 3(Official Gazette, 2010, No 127-6513), Central Prison Hospital and Pravieniskes Medical Treatment – Correction House were reorganized by merging the two of them into one legal entity – Central Prison Hospital, which possesses the rights and obligations of the above mentioned reorganized institutions since 1 February 2011.

Current status of the Central Prison Hospital is the budgetary institution subordinate to the Prison Department under the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania, which mission is to implement the provision of primary and secondary out-patient and secondary in-patient healthcare services to persons upon whom a preventive measure – detention is imposed and to inmates serving sentences of arrest and imprisonment thus ensuring the enforcement of a preventive measure – detention, arrest and custodial sentences.
