SCI Phoenix is a 3,830-bed facility situated on the property of SCI Graterford in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. This state-of-the-art facility was designed to replace the aging SCI Graterford, which was built in 1929.
SCI Phoenix’s unique model consists of two prototypical correctional facilities featuring one shared Administration/Support Building. Both East and West sides of SCI Phoenix have a Program Services Building, CI shops, Commissary, Property, and Maintenance.
SCI Phoenix also features a 192-bed Female Transition Unit (FTU), which is located outside the perimeter of SCI Phoenix. This unit will focus on reentry and family reunification.
An offering of treatment, educational, vocational and recreational programs is available to the inmate population, as well as numerous specialty units which include a Secure Residential Treatment Unit, Residential Treatment Unit, a Therapeutic Community, a Transitional Housing Unit, Veteran’s Service Unit, a Special Assessment Unit, a Special Observation Unit and a Diversionary Treatment Unit.
This facility features a total of 15 housing units within the perimeter with a bed capacity of 282 in each.
East primarily houses parole violators, new receptions; West houses general population inmates.
There are Four Security Level 5 Housing Units (2 on each side), with each housing 182 inmates. This facility also features an Outside Service Unit (OSU) built in 2002 that houses 145 inmates.
