The Army has awarded a $19.3 million contract to ManTech International Corp. to provide engineering and technical services to Brooke Army Medical Center in Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
Under the five-year deal, the Fairfax, Va., company will offer systems engineering, programming, network management, document imaging, database and LAN administration, Web support and hardware maintenance at the center's Information Management Division.
The medical center is the Army's most modern health care facility and its only level-one trauma center, according to a press release by ManTech. Among the hospital's technological advances: the Medical Diagnostic Imaging System, which can electronically store, transmit and display ultrasound images on PCs, and a teleconferencing capability that allows the digital transfer of X-rays and data from the medical center to other facilities.
