Lockheed Martin Technical Services has won a $193 million contract from the U.S. Army Medical Command to assist in consolidating its military medical facilities at Fort Sam Houston. Under the contract, Lockheed martin will furnish logistical support for the relocation of basic and specialty training operations for enlisted personnel from the Air Force’s 882nd Training Group, the Naval Schools of Health Sciences and the Naval Hospital Corps School to Ft. Sam Houston. These units will be consolidated with the present Army Medical Department Center and School at the post as part of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure decision.
In addition to logistical support, Lockheed Martin will help identify new equipment needs as well as develop a purchasing plan for both medical and non-medical equipment and furnishings, manage the relocation and warehousing of existing and new equipment, and install, calibrate, and provide training on how to properly use the new equipment.
Carey Smith, VP of Lockheed Martin Technical Services, said “We know our logistics expertise will help provide a smooth transition for these important units to Fort Sam Houston and ensure that our servicemen and women continue to receive the highest quality medical treatment that they deserve.”
