About Iowa Medical and Classification Center (IMCC)
IMCC serves as the reception and classification center for all those entering the adult male institutional corrections system, which is estimated to be 400-500 new commitments every month that are then processed on to the other facilities. However, IMCC is a multi-faceted facility that employs a diversified professional workforce providing comprehensive services to both offenders and patients. A medium security general population unit is in operation at IMCC and the Center also runs the only licensed forensic psychiatric hospital in the state, providing inpatient psychiatric and evaluation services to non-adjudicated patients.  An additional unit consisting of 178 medical and psychiatric beds was added in 2007 to meet the increasing mental health and medical needs of the correctional population. The professional health care staff at IMCC include: dental, laboratory, medical physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, optometry, physician assistants, psychiatrists, psychologists, radiology, respiratory, and social workers.
