SNC-Lavalin was awarded a USD 62 million contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to provide Initial Outfitting & Transition (IO&T) Services for the replacement of the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital (GLWACH) in the state of Missouri. The Company will provide full services to transition approximately 1,156 staff located in the legacy facility and outlying medical spaces into the newly constructed GLWCH facility. The GLWACH replacement is the largest project awarded under the IO&T Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) MATOC III.
The project replaces a 40-year-old facility with a new modern medical campus programmed to support 5,700 active-duty military personnel, 20,400 trainees and their families. Work includes full project management services, with medical and non-medical equipment planning, furniture and equipment purchasing, transition planning and relocation, installation, testing, training, warehousing and final turnover and close-out. The new USD 302 million GLWACH facility is located at Fort Leonard Wood, MO.
The new facility includes a 235,400 square-foot hospital, a 193,300 square foot clinic, central utility plant, emergency back-up generators, five-bay ambulance garage, helipad and support facilities. The company has provided previous U.S. Military hospital IO&T services expertise at the Weed Army Community Hospital and Mary E. Walker Clinic at Fort Irwin, California, and the Brian D. Allgood Army Community Hospital at Camp Humphreys in South Korea. The Healthcare Operations Team has completed 22 IO&T projects in the past 10 years.
