New In-Patient Treatment Center
Awarded a citation
The escalating number of incarcerated individuals with a serious mental illness is a problem for correctional agencies across the nation. To create a corrections hospital that will set a national standard for mental health care, Illinois decided to break away from the typical prison design. The Department selected an internationally recognized firm to design a state-of-the-art facility. The architectural firm has consistently demonstrated an amazing ability to exceed our high expectations. This firm designed a hospital that will not only provide a community standard of care in a corrections setting, but provide increased safety and efficiency for staff.
