Oakdale Iowa Medical Classifications Center

CORALVILLE – The Iowa Board of Corrections voted unanimously today in support of the appointment of Mike Heinricy as the next warden of the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Coralville, IA. This appointment was recommended to the board by a department hiring committee.

Heinricy has served as the deputy warden of the Iowa Medical and Classification Center since May of 2020, and he served as the Deputy Warden at the Anamosa State Penitentiary from May of 2016 to April of 2020. He started his more-than-17-year career in corrections with the Anamosa State Penitentiary as a Correctional Officer in 2002. Throughout his career in corrections, he has held such positions as: Officer, Counselor, Unit Manager, and Deputy Warden.

Commenting on the approval by the board, Iowa Corrections Director Beth Skinner said, “IMCC is probably our most complex prison in the entire system. The team that works there is extremely dedicated to their job, and they deserve a leader that will be dedicated to helping them succeed. I am positive that Warden Heinricy is going to serve this team, and the taxpayers of Iowa well as the leader of this extremely important correctional facility.”
