PAE has secured a $21.5M contract to operate and deploy a temporary, alternative medical facility in support of COVID-19 patients in Atlanta.

The company said Monday it will establish Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center as a COVID-19 care site and offer complementary operational, logistical and maintenance services.

Georgia's Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency awarded the contract. PAE partner AMI will also support the delivery of medical work under the effort.

The effort follows PAE’s previous work during the Ebola outbreak. John Heller, president and CEO at PAE and a 2020 Wash100 recipient, said the firm will perform the same level of work for the COVID-19 crisis.

“PAE is proud to be part of Georgia's team to combat spread of the coronavirus,“ said Chuck Anderson, president of PAE's global mission services unit.
