Psychiatric, medical and dental services are provided by Correctional Medical Services (CMS). Offender housing consists of a double-celled medium security unit, a county detention area for males, a county detention area for females, and a double-celled administrative segregation unit. The entire facility is designed to comply with American Correctional Association (ACA) standards.
