SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InGenesis Medical Staffing of San Antonio, Texas, announces the U.S. Army has awarded the CONUS Dental-South East Region contract to one of its InGenesis Arora (IA) joint ventures.
This single-vendor, five-year contract--valued at about $110 million--will place an estimated 270 dentists and other dental ancillary providers at 10 Army facilities located in five states. Specifically, IA healthcare employees will work at U.S. Army Dental Treatment Facilities (DTFs) operating in Georgia (Fort Stewart, Fort Benning, Hunter Army Base, Fort McPhearson, Fort Gordon); Alabama (Fort Rucker, Redstone); Mississippi (Camp Shelby); Kentucky (Fort Campbell); and South Carolina (Fort Jackson).
The US Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) Center for Health Care Contracting notified the company on June 22 that it had won the award, which goes into effect October 1, 2009.
"InGenesis looks forward to providing first-class dental health care to Army servicemen and women as well as their families," says Veronica Edwards, president and CEO of InGenesis. "It's important for our troops to have access to all kinds of expert dental services to keep them in optimal health and maintain the overall 'readiness' of America's military."
Ms. Edwards expects the majority of employees now holding these dental positions will re-apply for their jobs and transition from the existing vendor(s) to IA. If additional personnel are needed, IA will find them via its extensive candidate databases and other targeted, nationwide recruiting efforts.
The CONUS contract was awarded just two weeks after InGenesis announced another IA joint venture had won 12 Army contracts (part of a $1.2 billion multiple-vendor award) placing physicians, nurses and ancillary healthcare providers in military facilities nationwide. Earlier this year IA landed two other substantial contracts: a $97.5 million single award staffing dental assistants at Navy facilities on the West Coast; and a contract worth nearly $186 million placing healthcare professionals at Navy facilities on the East Coast.
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. Both firms have earned exemplary ratings for the performance of their dentists and ancillary dental providers placed at Army, Air Force and Navy facilities throughout the country.
Online-only applications for all CONUS dental positions are now being accepted at www.InGenesisArora.com.
