Advocates say privatization has hurt medical care at D.C.'s Correctional Treatment Facility.

Early in June, Carol Kosh paid a visit to her aunt, Sheila Morris, an inmate who was working to complete a drug treatment program at the D.C. Correctional Treatment Facility (CTF). During her visit, Morris showed her niece a walnut-size cyst under her left arm that was reddish and bruised-looking, and that doctors at D.C. General Hospital had told her in March was malignant and needed to be removed. Kosh knew the cyst was not something to be taken lightly, because Morris is HIV-positive.
