The Lexington Assessment and Reception Center complex is composed of three units:

1. The Lexington Assessment and Reception Center is a special purpose maximum security unit that receives persons sentenced to prison by the courts. During the reception period of approximately ten to thirty days staff determine which DOC facility assignment is most appropriate for each inmate. Security and operations support is provided by the prison, with additional staff working in classification and health services supplied by the Operations division. The additional staffing is listed above, with the prison staffing listed separately under the correctional center side. The reception process operates under the direction of the administrator of Population Management.

2. The Lexington Correctional Center is a medium security prison. Its count and funding is listed separately and it is administered by the warden of the facility.

3. The Rex Thompson Minimum Security Unit staffing and budget are included under the correctional center side, with a separate table to show the inmate profile at the unit. This unit is also administered by the warden.

This facility was built on the site of the Lexington Regional Treatment Center, an old military installation acquired by the department in 1971.
