The incident comes two weeks after Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.
A stretcher carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7.30 am.
The ambulance went to New York Downtown Hospital, reports the New York Post.
The tycoon financier is being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.
