Acknowledgement Of Former Employee Allegations
The move into contracted services was a result of a federal Iawsuit filed by the Lewisburg Prison Project, on behalf of inmates due to inadequate health care and unsafe housing conditions. A $1.5 million settlement was reached in 2010, and the county upgraded the building and hired Prime Care. A final inspection was held in April 2012, resulting in the Lewisburg Prison Project agreeing to no further legal action against the county and the prison. The prison earned a certificate of accreditation from the National Commission on Correctional Health Care for its compliance with the organization's standards for health service in jail.
