SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — InGenesis, Inc., of San Antonio, Texas has been awarded a Clinical Acquisition Support Services (CLASS) contract by the U.S. Air Force. Valued at $992 million over five years, the multiple-award CLASS contracts will provide physicians, nurses, dental, allied and ancillary healthcare specialists to military treatment facilities within the U.S. and Guam beginning in May 2012.
“InGenesis is well prepared to meet the needs of the Air Force through this CLASS contract, especially the growing behavioral health, physician and physician extender demands of the Air Force’s major medical centers across the country,” said InGenesis founder and CEO Veronica Edwards. “We have built a strong pool of skilled providers in more than 100 healthcare labor categories while supporting 70 client facilities in 34 states, including seven Air Force base locations. Our primary contract awards have been from the Army, Navy and the Department of Health and Human Services, so we look forward to extending our high-quality services to more Air Force facilities.”
No decisions have been announced about the precise number of employees required to fill the multiple-vendor contracts. Edwards expects most of the employees currently holding positions to re-apply for their jobs and transition from the existing vendors to InGenesis and other awardees.
“InGenesis welcomes the opportunity to expand our workforce of healthcare professionals supporting Air Force facilities,” Edwards said. “We are continuously impressed by the dedication and skill of the civilians we employ to help service the medical needs of the nation’s military service members and their dependents.”
