NASA-JSC Awards Contract to Kelsey-Seybold Clinic

NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) has awarded a new contract to Kelsey-Seybold Clinic of Houston to conduct the Occupational Medicine and Occupational Health and Test Support programs at the center, the JSC operations at nearby Ellington Field and Sonny Carter Training Facility as well as the White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico.

This contract is in support of the overall NASA Occupational Health Program (OHP) which consists of approximately 400 occupational medicine and environmental health professionals distributed across 10 primary NASA Centers. That team provides comprehensive medical support to a diverse, highly technological workforce of over 60,000 civil servant and contractor employees involved in human exploration and development of space, aeronautics research and earth and space science activities. All traditional occupational health program elements are provided including medical surveillance, industrial hygiene, health physics, emergency medical response, employee assistance programs, fitness programs and overall health and wellness programs.

The value of this Cost-Plus-Awards Fee/Incentive contract for the first year is $8,534,576 with the total contract value including all priced options being $45,074,359.

An unsuccessful offer was made by Wyle Laboratories, also based in Houston.
