The facility was built to support patient treatment and medical care while ensuring the safety and security of staff. A patient's stay in TCID can range from a few months to up to two years. Patient rooms are designed to be more home-like than a typical hospital to accommodate longer stays, and each room is designed as an airborne isolation room with the heating and air conditioning ventilation system designed to allow the airflow to be changed from negative pressure to neutral when a patient is no longer contagious.
