MAYETTA: Prairie Band Health Services (PBHS), a subsidiary of Prairie Band, LLC, is continuing to build momentum as a company and was recently one of six companies awarded the Western Physicians MATO Contract from the United States Navy. Under the contract PBHS and the five other companies will provide competitive bids to the Navy to fill task orders for 255 physicians positions and 37 other medical personnel positions.
“We have been working to build PBHS’s federal contracting capacity and we are starting to see the results of that work. Our work is far from over though. Once the task orders are released we need to focus on providing competitive bids to the government and wait for the task orders to be awarded.” said Burton Warrington, President and CEO of Prairie Band, LLC
In March of 2011 PBHS was awarded a contract from the United States Navy to provide services at 29 Palms and Lemoore Military Bases in California. PBHS currently provides emergency room physicians for the Robert E. Bush Naval Hospital at 29 Palms Military Base. PBHS is also preparing to start 6 additional positions under that contract including 3 Licensed Clinical Social Workers, a Pharmacist, a Registered Nurse and a Substance Abuse Counselor.
PBHS is a healthcare management staffing company that provides cost effective, comprehensive healthcare solutions for the federal government and corporate clients throughout the United States. PBHS offers a vast range of services that include recruiting, credentialing and placement of clinical, technical and administrative professional personnel for numerous federal military bases and private commercial clients.
