Default FBOP medical facilities

Does anyone have an idea about how the different FMC's in the BOP function -- specifically, how are prisoners designated to them? How is this decided? Do they have specialties that they deal with? The BOP website just lists the FMC's and the medical center in Springfield, but of course no further elaboration on their specific mission is offered.

I get that prisoners with serious medical and mental health conditions are sometimes transferred to one of them, but beyond that, is there something 'special' about each one, if that makes sense?

Here is a link to a 144 page 2008 audit report by the DOJ Inspector General that attempts to clarify the bop's medical policy. Including the process for determining the correct level of health care available for prisoners sent to each institution. Each bop prison has a medical rating, and only prisoners who are able to receive appropriate care for their specific health problems are designated there.

Thank you for providing a link to what is undoubtedly a very helpful doc. Unfortunately the link doesn't work... Any way I can search for it? When I searched for it by title I get the same broken link.

It's not working for me today either, but it was OK yesterday?? It is the 2008 DOJ OIG's report a0808 final pdf. I'll try again later.

Here's a link to a bop program statement "P6270.01: Medical Designations
and Referral Services for Federal Prisoners, it may be helpful.

Alan is the king of post-conviction lawyers, but that document is not relevant because of age. My 2 cents is that the BOP hospital system has improved enormously over the past 5 years and that's a good thing.
