Notable inmates include former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich (serving a 14-year sentence for wire fraud, bribery, and extortion), former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle (serving a 15-year sentence for child pornography and other charges), and former University of Southern California professor Walter Lee Williams (scheduled for release in 2017 after serving 5 years for illicit sexual conduct).

Health Services: The FCI Englewood Health Services Department conducts an intake screening examination upon arrival at the institution. Within 14 days inmates are also given a complete physical examination. Routine sick call and dental call, emergency care, preventive health screening, and medications are provided. While emergency care is available 24 hours a day, inmates must submit a triage form for routine care needs.

These services include initial screenings, suicide prevention, crisis intervention, treating the mentally ill, psychiatric medication referrals, psycho-educational groups, providing self-help materials, and individual counseling.
