NORWALK, Conn. — EMCOR Group Inc. announced that its subsidiary EMCOR Government Services (EGS) has been awarded contracts for operation, maintenance, and repair of systems and services with an expanded scope of work at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and the building housing the Northern Region Medical Command in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. EGS has been the service provider for Fort Belvoir Community Hospital since it opened in 2011.

EGS will be responsible for the operation, maintenance, and repair of Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, a 1.8 million-square-foot facility that contains 120 patient beds, several operating rooms, an intensive care unit, a level II nursery, and a Warrior Transition Unit, and more than 65 specialty outpatient clinics. Scope of work includes repair and maintenance of the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and refrigeration systems, as well as operation and repair of all hospital emergency power, medical gas, communications, fire and life safety, and vertical transportation systems. EGS will also provide grounds maintenance, pest control, water treatment, and energy management services.

EGS’s scope of work for the building that houses the Northern Region Medical Command will be similar to those services to be provided for Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.

“EMCOR Government Services continues to adapt to the evolving needs of the federal government and keeping the quality of its service at an exceptionally high level,” said Mike Rodgers, president, EMCOR Government Services. “EMCOR Government Services saves customers time and money by self-performing in areas where many of its competitors rely on subcontractors. In addition to being convenient and cost-effective, in a hospital environment, time saved by in-house response equates to a reduction in lost-time and potentially saves lives.”
