imagesThe 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.

Mental health units are provided for inmates with acute mental health needs. The mental health program is designed to stabilize the inmate and move him through a process where the inmate takes more responsibility for his behavior and mental health. There are units for the mentally challenged and a sheltered workshop program available to inmates in this unit.

A progressive, therapeutic program is provided for the department’s sex offender population. Mental health professionals attempt to lead these inmates through stages of identifying their problems and beginning to deal with them. Additionally, a geriatric unit is located at this facility for TDOC inmates who are aged or infirm and unable to care for themselves within a traditional prison population.

DSNF has a turnover of 250 beds per month and the majority of these inmates have significant needs. The facility’s mission is to provide for the mental health and health needs of the population. It is DSNF’s goal to provide quality care at the facility.
