California Health Care Facility in Stockton is undergoing management changes. Warden Ron Rackley has accepted a position at Folsom. He will be replaced by Vacaville’s Warden Brian Duffy.
Rackley said his decision has nothing to do with issues at the facility, including scrutiny from the Prison Law Office, which is questioning inmate deaths that have occured at the facility since it opened last year.
The facility recently resumed medical and mental health admissions following a halt in intake due to inadequate and unsanitary conditions.
Rackley said Folsom is closer to his home and the position is one he has been wanting for some time.
Rackley spoke positively about his experiences both at the health care facility and at DVI, and talked about challenges in an interview.
The full story will be in Thursday’s paper. But in the meantime, here is a memo that went out after 5 p.m. Tuesday: DAI Managerial Assignments 08-19-14
