Spectrum Healthcare Resources (Spectrum), the government staffing division of TeamHealth, has been directed by the Army Medical Command to proceed with a contract originally awarded in 2009 and subsequently re-awarded in June 2011 for completing the construction of and providing clinical staffing and management services for two new Family Health Centers (FHCs) in Northern Virginia.
Although appeal activities are expected to continue, the directive to proceed is a result of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims’ resolution of protest issues associated with the original contract awards.
Located in Fairfax and Dumfries, Va., the Family Health Centers are extensions of the new Fort Belvoir Community Hospital (FBCH), in Ft. Belvoir, Va. Targeted for completion on or before July 1, 2012, the Family Health Centers will serve approximately 47,000 active and retired U.S. Military personnel and their dependents with primary care, laboratory, radiology and specialty healthcare services and pharmacies for the exclusive use of eligible patients.
“Spectrum Healthcare Resources is honored and privileged the Army has selected our organization to develop these impressive, state-of-the-art clinics in order to serve their beneficiaries,” said George Tracy, President of Spectrum. “We are excited to partner with the Army in transitioning the primary setting of care for so many individuals.”
Under its contract, Spectrum expects to complete construction of the new clinics on or before June 30 before beginning a five-year engagement to provide patient care services. More than 300 physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and administrative employees will staff these new clinics, and Spectrum will prioritize recruiting staff from FBCH’s current FHCs to transition with the patients to the new facilities.
Upon the completion of the clinic construction and commencement of clinical staffing and management services, annual revenues under the contract are estimated to be approximately $43 million.
