In a long-awaited move to comply with state guidelines, dozens gathered at California Medical Facility on Thursday to celebrate the opening of a new facility on the Vacaville prison’s grounds, a move that officials say will not only increase inmate capacity, but may save a number of jobs. The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new mental health care facility, followed by a tour of the pristine 64-bed unit, its dining halls, nurses stations, examination rooms and safety holding cells gave visitors an up-close and personal look of the end result of a $33.7 million project almost two years in the making.
