DLH Awarded Navy Healthcare Services Contract
Atlanta, Georgia (August 14, 2018)—DLH Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: DLHC) recently won a $5 million task order contract to provide healthcare services for the Naval Medical Center at Portsmouth (NMCP), Virginia, through a 5-year period (which includes four option years). DLH’s healthcare professionals will provide integrative and comprehensive care for NMCP's Medical Home Port patients including those at its facilities in Oceana and Virginia Beach, Virginia. Information technology tools will include the Armed Forces Longitudinal Technology Application, Comprehensive Health Care System, Care Point, Integrated Clinical Database information systems, and tracking of Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set measures.
"It is an honor to expand our healthcare services to our sailors and their families as they put themselves at risk every day for us," said Kevin Wilson, president of DLH's Health and Logistics Services operating unit.
The NMCP complex is one of the Navy's state-of-the-art medical centers with nine branch clinics throughout the Hampton Roads area.
"This medical center has a long tradition of providing top-quality care to the fleet, their family, and local civilians. We plan to support that tradition," commented Dr. Walter Elias, M.D. (U.S. Navy retired), the DLH medical director who will oversee the project.
