Healthcare talent platform SnapNurse announced it will send hundreds of medical personnel to Alaska in a staffing deal with DLH Holdings Corp. The personnel will be placed as part of two Federal Emergency Management Agency contracts recently awarded to DLH. The contracts are valued at up to $107 million combined.

The first contract calls for DLH and its partners to provide medical countermeasures and emergency medical services for hospitals, long-term care facilities and schools throughout Alaska. It has a total ceiling value of $87 million for the 90-day base period. The second contract calls for the placement of experienced medical personnel to support Covid-19 community testing and collection, vaccination and monoclonal antibody therapy. It holds a ceiling value of $20 million for the 90-day base period. Both contracts include three one-month optional extensions after the initial period of performance.

Alaska is currently responding to an uptick in Covid-19 cases, according to SnapNurse. The medical support personnel will be placed in communities throughout the state by SnapNurse while DLH will provide emergency medical logistics coordination for the healthcare services team.
