  • Oregon's Correctional Institutions
    Oregon State Correctional Institution
    Oregon's prisons are safe, civil and productive so inmates can pursue the goals specified in their corrections plans. Additionally, high-caliber staff help shape positive behavior. To hold inmates accountable for their actions, the division's responsibilities encompass prison management, health services, inmate transportation, security threat group (gang) management, emergency preparedness, and most inmate work activities.
Operations Operations
Health Services provides health care to inmates at each state institution operated by the department. State and federal laws have established that inmates are entitled to health care during incarceration. Health care services available to inmates must be comparable to health care provided in the community in order to meet the state's legal obligation. This means that all types and levels of health care must be provided in a clinically appropriate manner by properly credentialed professionals in settings equipped and designed for the delivery of health care. Health care includes medical, dental and psychiatric/mental health services.
