Government solutions provider PAE has been chosen by the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency to mobilize the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta as an Alternative Care Site to provide treatment for COVID-19 patients.
“We were on the front lines of the Ebola crisis, mobilizing and supporting treatment units and a field hospital in Liberia for USAID in 2014,” said PAE President and CEO John Heller. “With COVID-19, our talented workforce can apply that same rapid response to this humanitarian crisis that will help Americans who need it most.”
Under the $21.5 million contract, the PAE Expeditionary Support and Stabilization Team will quickly manage setting up a 200-bed medical facility in the convention center and provide operations, maintenance and logistical support throughout the duration of the response. Partner AMI (formerly Aspen Medical International) will help to provide medical services.
“PAE is proud to be part of Georgia’s team to combat spread of the coronavirus,” said PAE President of Global Mission Services Chuck Anderson. “We will rapidly deliver additional medical capability and support services to the state of Georgia. PAE and AMI have the experience and resources ready to assist Governor Kemp in his state’s fight against this pandemic.”
