UXC wins ICT contract with Queensland Children's Hospital

The systems integrator will nab between AU$10 million and AU$20 million for this deal.

Systems integrator, UXC, has won a contract to roll out and support the ICT infrastructure for the Queensland Children's Hospital. Due to open in late 2014, the AU$1.4 billion hospital will have 359 beds and will offer paediatrics care.

UXC stands to score between AU$10 million and AU$20 million for the deal depending on the final service design. The company will be responsible for the provisioning of ICT systems integration and other services including project management, design services, inventory management, and training services.

It is also providing support services for the ICT services that would be delivered.

"This project will further build and extend our integration, infrastructure, and rapidly developing health capabilities," UXC managing director, Cris Nicolli, said in a statement. "This is another significant win for UXC and further establishes our credentials in winning large scale, complex project.

Last year, UXC won a AU$40 million contract to implement IT infrastructure for the Gold Coast University Hospital.
