Stockton facility moves forward

CHCF Aerial Photo

The California Health Care Facility – Stockton (CHCF) is an intermediate-level medical and mental health care facility for patient-inmates within the California state prison system. By centrally locating its inmates with the highest level of medical and mental health care, the State of California is able to provide health care to its incarcerated population in a more cost effective and efficient manner.

Construction of the site has begun and is due to be operational by the end of 2013.
CHCF will employ approximately 2,400 people in over 160 different job classifications. In addition to correctional officers, the facility will be staffed by a wide range of health care and non-health care personnel. Three different State Departments will employ staff at CHCF. While the majority of staff will begin working in 2013, some hiring is already underway. If you would like to help shape the future of CHCF, visit the websites below.
