Pioneering a Constitutional Level of Care in a Healing Environment

CHCF-Stockton is a 1,722-bed intermediate, medical and mental health care facility for inmate-patients of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) prison system. It was designed and constructed to consolidate facilities for long-term medical inmate-patients, as well as acute and intermediate mental health inmate-patients in one central location for more efficient, safe  and cost-effective delivery of services. The new, sub-acute health care facility will allow California Prison Health Care Services to provide the required constitutional level of care to inmate patients from across the state.

Inmate-Patients Work with Staff to Achieve Mutually-Established Recovery Goals

CHCF provides quality care within the context of a correctional setting appropriate to the inmate-patient population. From planning and design, through organisation, staffing and operations, this facility emphasises an environment conducive to appropriate levels of treatment, and programs for both medical and mental health inmate-patients. The project is designed to create a healing environment based on principles of evidence-based design, which contribute to improvements such as decreased lengths of stay and reduced infection rates. Inmate patients who qualify to be admitted for treatment at CHCF are encouraged to take individual responsibility for managing and achieving recovery goals mutually established with healthcare professionals.
