This is a new one on me. I have never heard of it.If it is FMC Lexington, have you checked the Federal forum as that is a federal prison? Perhaps they have info on it there.

My very best to you and yours.

I can tell you all about the fmc lexington - f-4 unit. My friend was cruelly treated there he died almost one year ago.

The moderators won't allow me to talk much about it on the board *not sure why... so you will have to email me or pm me for more info.

I was in FPC Lex from 2000-2002. Sounds like things haven't changed much since then.

Can anyone give detailed info on Lexington Camp? Self surrender Dec. 13th and leaving a 11 yr old little girl at home. Anxiety, like everyone else.
Thanks for any info about this camp. I heard it's not up to date with things.

My aunt was recently transferred to FMC Lexington. She says the conditions are not as good as the Texas prison where she was originally incarcerated, but feels they're tolerable since she's now hours closer to her sons. Maybe you'll be within the same unit as her. I'll send you a PM. :)

Hello My daughter is at the satellite camp. It is not a medical facility. It is a satellite camp at the mens medical prison.

Hello My daughter is at the satellite camp. It is not a medical facility. It is a satellite camp at the mens medical prison.

Actually, Karen, that facility can handle more medical-related problems than the others that I know of. And, yes, it is a satellite camp, but the men are separated from the women - separate facilities. The male and female inmates are not in actual physical contact with each other - they are separated. That particular facility might be good for inmates who have certain medical problems, but I know that it lacks in numerous other areas.

I can assure you that this facility is NOT a medical facility. Yes the mens is, which is within walking distance. If there is an emergency a guard has to call them and if there is no one sick at the time at the mens facility, they will come over and evaluate. There is a doctor and a nurse there during the day, but that is also a whole different story. The medical department stinks!!!!!! I was there for one year and prayed every day that I never got sick. The doctor there was a reject from the county jail and use to be a gynocologist, so everything you go to him for, he wants to take a peak. I hated going to medical, because they treated everyone like they were lying. If you were very sick and could finally convince them of this, they would eventually send you to Carswell TX. Yes, the facility was dirty for the most part, but the building was very old and you could only do so much with it.

I know this post is late, but for anyone reading it, tw5595, is exactly right, fmc lexington, is NOT a medical facility!! I was there 2004-2005, and nearly died, they finally rushed me to uk hospital, where i spent a week! The facility in lexington, is a work camp for girls, and not a medical center, they are NOT equiped for medical care. if anyone needs more info, just contact me...

The building that the women are in was built in the 1940's for psych patients, probably had better healthcare back then!

My friend went in to the camp at Lexington at the end of October. She has not complained about conditions or treatment. It's been difficult for her to adjust and this is her first time in prison. She is managing though. Prison is never a good thing but from what i hear from my friend and other posts on her, this place is not that bad.

I self surrendered there in 95. It's across the fence from the men's facility. There isn't a fence around it, nor are there any cells. You work while you are there. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I will try my best to answer them.
