DNAInfo is reporting that New York City will not renew its $270 million contract with the Tennessee-based corporation Corizon to run health care in the city’s jails when the contract expires at the end of 2015.

The Intercept, in partnership with The Investigative Fund, now known as Type Investigations, published an extensive investigation by Erika Eichelberger last Friday, May 29, of Corizon’s treatment of inmates at the women’s jail at Rikers Island, the Rose M. Singer Center. Eichelberger details the death of a 61-year-old female prisoner with liver failure, apparently due to Corizon’s neglect; another inmate whose concussion wasn’t diagnosed for six days; a diabetic given a dangerously-high dosage of insulin; and other patients whose important medications were discontinued.

Corizon has been accused for several years of negligence at Rikers and elsewhere in the city’s jail system.
