Operated by the Department of Mental Health, this licensed Intermediate level, in-patient care facility will house up to 64 inmates. The facility is the first construction completed with bond financing authorized by AB 900, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Services Act of 2007 (Solorio), intended to relieve prison overcrowding and upgrade facilities to meet court-ordered improvements in medical, dental and mental health treatment for inmates.
Construction of the $33.7 million project, which broke ground in June 2010, was managed by CDCR. The 45,000 sq. ft. facility includes space for housing, treatment and administration, exercise yards, parking, new guard towers and an extension of the lethal electrified security fence that surrounds the California Medical Facility.
