Corrections Overview

Since 1987, MTC has been a leader in the management and operation of private correctional facilities. MTC is the third largest operator of private adult correctional facilities. The 5,579-employee division also provides inmate medical and dental care through its MTC Medical contracts.


MTC entered the private corrections industry with the intent to provide a positive social impact through an operational philosophy we call Success for Life®.  Through evidenced based and promising programs, MTC prepares offenders for re-entry into the community using a holistic operational approach to meet individual needs.


To ensure it operates the highest quality correctional facilities, MTC pursues nationally-recognized accreditations from the American Correctional Association, the Correctional Education Association, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care, and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care.  In 2009, the MTC corporate office obtained American Correctional Association accreditation, becoming the first corporate office to do so. 


MTC’s proven performance and high integrity provide delivery of quality services to customers through innovation, adaptability and cost effectiveness.   


In the United States, the federal government joins 35 individual state governments in contracting with private sector companies to operate secure facilities. Many state and local correctional agencies are also now contracting for their medical and dental services.


Public-private partnerships for contracted prison operations exist in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Israel and elsewhere.  Successful outcomes have resulted in more and more government leaders raising expectations for corrections and using new partnership approaches.
