The Gadsden Correctional Facility is a private state prison for women located in Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida, operated by Management and Training Corporation (MTC) under contract with the Florida Department of Corrections.[1] This facility was opened in 1995 and has a maximum capacity of 1544 prisoners.

As of 2017, the prison houses 1,530 prisoners.[2]

In the mid-2010s C-Dorm had issues with its plumbing and no heat. This meant water for prisoners was rationed and there was no hot water. After three inspections occurred, David Richardson, a Florida congressperson, asked MTC to install a new water heater for the facility. It was installed in February 2017 shortly before the fourth inspection.[2]
