AdvanceMed Corp., a subsidiary of El Segundo, Calif.-based Computer Sciences Corp., won a $96 million contract from the Energy Department to provide occupational medicine services at the Hanford cleanup site near Richland, Wash.
The contract is for three years with seven one-year options.
The company will provide medical surveillance, employee counseling and heath promotion, emergency and disaster preparedness and monitor legacy health issues for about 11,000 people at the Hanford site, the nation's largest environmental cleanup and restoration project.
The work of CSC and others contractors is "the next chapter in addressing one of the nation's largest environmental challenges," said Marty Zizzi, director of health care delivery services for CSC's AdvanceMed health care organization.
The Energy Department's Hanford site was established to produce plutonium for the Manhattan Project, which developed the first atomic bomb. Plutonium processing at the site ceased in the late 1980s, and cleanup began in 1989.
With 2002 revenue of $11.4 billion, CSC ranked No. 5 on Washington Technology's 2003 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
