Job Description

Bring your passion for science and health care to California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS), where these two fields converge. Here, in a multidisciplinary setting, adept laboratory technologists, like you, contribute greatly to the diagnosis and treatment of the diverse patient population in our care.


In this key position, you will:

  • Conduct and/or oversee complex technical lab tests and analyses
  • Provide technical direction and training to lower level lab staff
  • Participate in quality assurance reviews and prepare administrative reports, statements, budget requests, and other documents required by administrative and medical staff


The ideal candidate will possess a valid California State Clinical Laboratory Technologist license or a license of equal or higher level issued by the State Department of Health Services and at least one year of experience in comprehensive clinical laboratory work that involved making laboratory analyses.


In return for your efforts, CCHCS offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes:

  • Generous paid time off and holiday schedule (11 each year)
  • A variety of medical, dental, and vision insurance options
  • State of California retirement that vests in 5 years – visit for retirement formulas
  • And much more


This rewarding opportunity currently exists at Calipatria State Prison, located just north of the desert community of El Centro. With access to nearby urban centers like Palm Springs and a variety of natural attractions and recreational activities, this is the ideal place to enjoy the work-life balance you’ll find with CCHCS.


Effective July 1, 2020, in response to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Personal Leave Program 2020 (PLP 2020) was implemented. PLP 2020 requires that each full-time employee receive a 9.23 percent reduction in pay in exchange for 16 hours PLP 2020 leave credits monthly through June 2022.
