Capacity: 300On May 10, 1981, the aged and infirmed inmates from Kilby Correctional Facility were moved to Hamilton into a refurbished facility purchased from the Alabama Mental Health Department. At the same time, the Hamilton Work Release Center located nearby in a previous road camp facility was closed. This established the Hamilton Aged and Infirmed Center (HAIC), which combined the two sub-populations groups into one facility. However, in August 1985, additional space was needed for an increasing aged and/or infirmed sub-population, and the work release element relocated back into the previous Work Release Center. HAIC has approximately five acres within a security fence, and houses minimum and medium custody inmates that are aged and/or infirmed. The medium custody A&I inmates are housed in such a manner as to provide adequate security along with the necessary medical services needed by each individual. A staff of minimum custody inmates provide facility upkeep and community work service.
