A 24-7 Infirmary provides medical care for those requiring intensive monitoring and treatment.

LCC's dialysis unit, the only one in the state, has the capacity to serve 12 inmates per shift. They have two CCH Techs, one charge registered nurse and one clinical manager registered nurse, who sees patients from facilities with the need for dialysis for two shifts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and an on-site nephrologist who sees patients once a month.
