SCI Waymart

SCI Waymart is located in a building complex that was formerly part of Farview State Hospital. Pressed into operation ahead of schedule following the 1989 Camp Hill riot, the joint on-site operation of a state prison and state mental health facility was unique. In October 1995, Farview State Hospital was transferred from the Department of Public Welfare to the Department of Corrections. Now known as the department’s Forensic Treatment Unit, the unit houses mentally disabled male inmates who require inpatient psychiatric care and treatment. SCI Waymart also houses minimum-security inmates.
