UXC scores $40 million Gold Coast Hospital contract

UXC will be the sole supplier for the new hospital's ICT infrastructure

ASX-listed UXC (ASX:UXC) has landed a $40 million deal to supply and install ICT infrastructure for the new Gold Coast University Hospital.

Queensland Health engaged Lend Lease as its managing contractor to construct the hospital's campus and facilities. In turn, Lend Lease engaged UXC as the sole supplier of the hospital’s ICT infrastructure.

The work involved includes datacentre, wired network, wireless LAN, unified communications and IP telephony, real time location services and mobile duress; firewalls and security and the patient entertainment system.

In a statement, UXC managing director, Cris Nicolli, said it was a significant win for UXC, showcasing its ability to win large scale and complex projects.

“This project will be instrumental in building and extending our infrastructure and burgeoning health capabilities,” Nicolli said. “ It is also a significant opportunity to establish our relationship with Lend Lease and broaden our relationship with Queensland Health.”

The Gold Coast University Hospital is due to open in September 2013 and will offer specialist services for oncology, neurosurgery, cardiac and pediatrics.
