Hyde Correctional Institution is a 756-bed medium/minimum security prison for adult males. Legislators provided for the 756-bed prison as part of the $87.5 million prison construction program authorized in 1993.

The design of the prison reflects improvements to the plans used in construction of the Lumberton Correctional Institution. By using prototype designs in this fashion, the department builds facilities with similar mechanical, electric and security systems.

Hyde Correctional Institution consists of three 216-bed dormitories linked to a common circulation corridor. A single building provides food service, medical service, visitation areas, maintenance, programs, administrative space and a 20-bed segregation unit.

In 1999, a 88-bed minimum custody satellite unit was added to Hyde Correctional Institution. Minimum custody inmates were moved into the satellite unit in April and are housed in two modular buildings.

Hyde Correctional Institution mans four medium custody road squad vans that service Hyde, Tyrrell, Beaufort, Martin and Washington Counties.
