The Woodland Center Correctional Facility presently houses the Inpatient Mental Health and Crisis Stabilization Program for MDOC.  An infirmary and clinic provide medical services for all prisoners being housed at WCC. One housing unit houses Level I prisoners. A food serving area is located within the housing complex and the kitchen is located outside the secure perimeter.

The Crisis Stabilization Program (CSP) is for prisoners experiencing a serious mental health crisis.  The intention is to stabilize these prisoners and provide ongoing inpatient mental health treatment.  There are 3 levels of care within the inpatient setting which consist of CSP, Acute Care (AC), and Rehabilitative Treatment Services or RTS.  Prisoners move through this system as clinically indicated with the intention of them returning to lower levels of mental health care.  WCC also has an infirmary with 23 beds that can provide health care at numerous levels depending on the acuity of the prisoner up to and including inpatient dialysis.  Approximately one hundred general population prisoners also reside at the facility, working as porters, in food service, maintenance and as observer aides.
