Citadel Wins in Health & Education

The Citadel Group has announced a number of significant contract wins in the health and education sector, including an $A33 million contract over 10 years with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Following the successful design and installation of collaboration technology into the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, culminating with its opening in 2017, Citadel has been working closely with the Spotless Group to support and manage the hospital’s software and hardware infrastructure. The Company has now signed a 10-year, $33 million managed services contract with the Spotless Group to provide support, maintenance and technology refresh services to the hospital.

Commenting on this new contract, Citadel CEO Darren Stanley said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by the Spotless Group to provide content and collaboration technology services to this world class hospital for the next decade. We have a strong working relationship with the Spotless Group that started in 2010 when Citadel joined the successful consortium engaged to build the $A2.3 billion facility.”

“Building on this recent momentum and our strong working relationship, we are progressing discussions with the Spotless Group about expanding our relationship into their other Public Private Partnership (PPP) programs around Australia,” added Mr Stanley.

Andy Elkin, ICT Service Delivery Manager with the Spotless Group remarked: “Citadel have proven to be a reliable, cost-effective, and innovative partner providing technology services to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. Testament to our relationship and our faith in their delivery is the length of this new contract. Broadening our relationship is the next logical step, and discussions in this direction are progressing well.”

John Hunter Children’s Hospital (JHCH) recently went live with Citadel’s CHARM oncology information management platform, successfully prescribing and administering chemotherapy to their paediatric patients.

This is a very strategic implementation for CHARM, as it clearly showcases Citadel’s innovation and the CHARM platform’s ability to manage the complexities of paediatric chemotherapy prescribing and administration.

“It’s a tremendous result for patients in Australia in support of our overarching purpose of keeping people and information safe”, added Mr Stephen Lynch, Citadel’s GM Health.

Citadel is also now providing digital services to six leading Australian universities following a contract award from the University of Melbourne which has engaged Citadel to install 13 Proof of Concept (POC) facilities for extensive end-user testing. Following the successful completion of this POC, the university is looking to enter into a five-year managed services contract with Citadel.
