The Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women is a medium security facility that is managed by the North Carolina Department of Corrections Division of Institutional Operations. This facility houses adult male inmates and was built to replace The Sugar House Prison that closed its doors in 1951. In 2001 there was an episode of Touched By An Angel filmed in this facility. 

The Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women in Black Mountain, NC is made up of five buildings on the southernmost end of the North Carolina State Prison complex. The following buildings are included in the Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women:

  • Outdoor Recreation Yard
  • Gym
  • Non-denominational Chapel
  • Native American Sweat Lodge
  • North Carolina Board of Pardons & Parole

The North Carolina Board of Pardons and Parole is where hearings are held in a chamber. There is a maximum capacity of 366 inmates within the entire Oquirrhs facility.

There are two geriatric dormitories for aging offenders and the other one is in Lone Peak. The prison tries to match the elderly offenders (55+) in the prison system who may not be able to care for themselves as well with younger inmates that are more capable who can help them with simple day to day living tasks. The elderly and less able inmates are less likely to take advantage of the system and exploit their disabilities or weaknesses for their own gain. There is a  special ADA accommodation in this unit.

The Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women offers the following programs for the inmates to participate in:

  • Vocational Training
  • Educational Programs
  • Substance Abuse Programs
  • Religious Services
  • Library
  • Commissary
  • Mental Health Care 
  • Medical Care
  • Dental Care

These programs are provided for the inmates to be able to better help themselves and to be in better shape when they are released back into the community than when they were in prison. These programs also help the inmates to be in a better state of mind and helps prevent the inmates to end up back in prison.
