UXC has won contract with Lend Lease worth more than $40 million to provide and install ICT equipment at the new Gold Coast University Hospital at Southport.

UXC will supply all ICT infrastructure for the hospital.

The contract includes a data centre, wired network and wireless LAN, unified communications, IP telephony and firewalls and security.

“This project will be instrumental in building and extending our infrastructure and burgeoning health capabilities. It is also a significant opportunity to establish our relationship with Lend Lease and to broaden our relationship with Queensland Health…” Cris Nicolli, UXC managing director, said in a statement.

“This is a significant win for UXC.”

The hospital is scheduled to open in September next year.
