UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IT CONTRACT GOES TO UXC

UXC Limited (ASX:UXC) this week secured a $40 million contract to supply and install information communication technology (ICT) infrastructure at the Gold Coast University Hospital in Southport.

The contract is the largest single delivery-contract the ICT company has secured for the past 12 months.

“We are delighted to have been entrusted to work with Lend Lease and Queensland Health on this important health initiative,” says UXC managing director Cris Nicolli (pictured).

“This project will be instrumental in building and extending our infrastructure and burgeoning health capabilities.

“This is a significant win for UXC and further establishes our credentials in winning large scale, complex projects.”

The ICT company was solely engaged by managing contractor Lend Lease, which is constructing the $1.76 billion Gold Coast University Hospital under the direction of government-funded Queensland Health.

UXC will build firewalls, IP telephony, unified communications, real time location services and mobile duress.

The company will also establish a data centre, wired network, wireless local area network and patient entertainment system.

UXC shares today rose slightly to 99.5 cents per unit.
