RESTON, Va., July 28 (UPI) -- A re-compete contract has been given to Serco Systems to support the U.S. Navy Expeditionary Medical Support Command.
Under the contract, Serco will provide NEWSCOM with deployable medical systems -- 10- to 150-bed deployable self-contained hospitals with equipment including Computerized Tomography, or CT, scanners and X-ray machines.
"At Serco, we take pride in our mission of service delivery excellence and embody that with every customer we serve," said Dan Allen, Serco Inc.'s chairman and chief executive officer. "We look forward to continuing to support NEMSCOM with its global responsibilities."
The contract has a one-year base period and four one-year option periods. If all options are exercised, the contract value will be $22.7 million.
Serco was awarded the original contract for deployable medical systems in 2009. A significant deployment of its system by the Navy occurred in 2010 for medical care in the aftermath of a major earthquake in Haiti.
