The Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Facility (DSNF) provides a number of services for the department including acute and convalescent health care, intensive mental health intervention, a therapeutic program for sex offenders, and departmental pharmaceutical services. Two skilled nursing units in the Health Center provide care for inmates recovering from surgery or serious illness. The center also provides housing for inmates whose treatment regimen is not manageable at other TDOC facilities. A rehabilitation unit houses inmates with long-term medical needs. DSNF contracts with a community hospital to provide inpatient and outpatient care for the inmate population in a designated, secure area. Other hospitals are also utilized for specialized care not available in the contract hospital. Specialty clinics, short-stay surgeries, individual treatment and diagnostic services not available at other facilities are provided to the inmates from all facilities through the transient unit, health center, and contract staff at DSNF.
