Synoptek Joins in Race to Build Emergency Coronavirus Hospitals

Synoptek, a global systems integrator and managed IT services provider for over two decades, has partnered with several government contractors, such as Salas o´Brien and Global Engineering Solutions, to help the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) design, build and manage the technology infrastructure of new alternate care facilities being erected in response to the COVID-19 crisis, the company said.

The USACE is currently overhauling unused hotels, dormitories, convention centers and large open spaces to build hundreds of temporary hospitals designed to cope with the thousands of new coronavirus cases being diagnosed daily. With cases expected to hit their projected peak within the next couple of weeks and healthcare resources and workers stretched thin, Synoptek has joined the fight and is currently providing technical support to get four USACE transitional hospitals fully operational in Illinois by the end of April.

Additionally, once each site is up and running, Synoptek will continue to manage and support the technology as part of the hospital´s daily operations.

Following the Illinois sites, Synoptek continues to engage contractors across the country in states such as Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Tennessee and Wisconsin to design, build, & support additional alternate care facilities.
