SCI Spotlight: Albion and Waymart

Throughout 2024, the PA Prisons and Parole Podcast will spotlight our state correctional institutions to highlight the history, culture and programs each has to offer. First up: SCI Waymart and SCI Albion.

Deputy Superintendent for Facilities Management Joseph Grillo of Waymart shares about the history of the facility — which was originally Farview State Hospital for the Criminal Insane — and it’s current role in working with inmates with mental health diagnoses. Later, Corrections Superintendent’s Assistant Michele Tharp shares about how Albion handles its long winters full of frequent snow.
