InGenesis Medical Staffing of San Antonio, Texas, announces the U.S. Army has awarded 12 healthcare staffing contracts -- valued at $1.27 billion -- to one of its InGenesis Arora (IA) joint ventures and a select few other companies. Collectively the firms will recruit, staff and manage these five-year Multiple Award Task Orders. The U.S. Army Medical Command Health Care Acquisition Activity Center informed IA it had won the solicitations on June 8, 2009.
The dozen contracts are all part of three larger regional awards: the $510.9 million Nursing Medical Services contract, the $416.4 million Physicians Services contract, and the $347.4 million Allied Health contract. IA employees will be part of a nationwide healthcare workforce serving Army medical treatment facilities (and additional Department of Defense agencies) in the 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and Korea. The military will notify IA at a later date which particular locations it will staff.
InGenesis Arora is comprised of InGenesis Medical Staffing and The Arora Group of Gaithersburg, Maryland, a full-service medical staffing firm with a national presence. "We're extremely pleased the Army has chosen us to be an integral partner in these sizable staffing awards," says Veronica Edwards, President and CEO of InGenesis Medical Staffing. "It's truly a privilege for our employees to be part of Army programs providing the highest level of quality health care to thousands of service members and their families throughout the country.”
No decisions have yet been announced about the precise number of employees required to fill the multiple-vendor contracts. Ms. Edwards says she expects most of the employees currently holding positions at the Army's treatment facilities will re-apply for their jobs and transition from the existing vendors to IA. Any additional qualified personnel needed to staff these contracts will be selected from IA's extensive candidate databases and through targeted, nationwide recruiting efforts coordinated by the company’s expert recruiters.
These 12 Army contracts represent the largest award "package" won by InGenesis in its corporate history. Earlier this year, IA landed two other substantial awards: a $97.5 million contract staffing dental assistants at Navy facilities on the West Coast; and a share of a $186 million, multi-vendor contract placing healthcare professionals at Navy facilities on the East Coast.
Online-only applications for all positions are now being accepted at www.InGenesisArora.com.
