CCA celebrates 30th anniversry

By Staff
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Throughout 2013, Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) - which operates the North Georgia Detention Center in Gainesville - will be celebrating its 30th anniversary as the founder of the corrections management industry and the nation's largest provider of partnership corrections services to federal, state and local governments.

"As we observe this milestone of 30 years in business, we are humbly thankful for our people, our passion and our partnerships," said Damon Hininger, president and chief executive officer at CCA. "For three decades, CCA has pursued future-focused, forward-thinking solutions to create programs that have become industry best practices."

Upon CCA's founding in 1983, there had never been a company that worked on behalf of government to operate and build correctional facilities. In its first year, CCA operated fewer than 700 beds. Today, the company has grown to operate more than 90,000 beds in more than 60 facilities, including more than 40 company-owned facilities, in 20 states and the District of Columbia.

"As we continue to grow, I am proud of our many accomplishments as a company, a government partner, and a corporate citizen," said Hininger. "CCA remains committed to continual improvement, innovation and leadership that exceed industry and partner expectations."
