Page 1 of 2 The Department of Veterans Affairs, Network Contracting Office 7, intends to award a sole-source contract to the Medical University Hospital Authority on or around October 1, 2017 to provide laboratory testing service for patient specimens that are urgent/emergent, and/or have limited viability, and not performed at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical, Charleston, SC. Testing includes, but is not limited to, Mycobacteria Stains, Immunoperoxidase Stains, Therapeutic Drugs, and Clotting Factor assays. Turnaround time for STAT/emergent testing is 24 hours, or less, as indicated for patient care. The Contractor possesses unique qualifications that require the use of the authority below. The Medical University Hospital Authority has demonstrated the unique qualifications as indicated under contract VA247-12-D-0050/VA247-15-J-1429 and contract VA-16-C-0119. Laboratory Services, a division of Clinical Services, provides Medical University Hospital Authority with laboratory services for inpatient, outpatient and outreach areas. The Division also serves as the testing site for the State of South Carolinas organ transplant agency. Organ transplants that are offered by the Medical University Hospital Authority include: kidney, pancreas, liver, and heart, bone marrow, intestinal and cornea. Inpatient laboratory services are offered on a 24 hour basis in the following sections: Fast Flow Laboratory and Transfusion Services. Sections which are staffed on a routine schedule include: Diagnostic Microbiology, Cytogenetics, Molecular Pathology, Special Hematology, Surgical Pathology, Cytopathology, Autopsy Pathology, Special Chemistry, Referral Testing, Outreach and Courier Services (for off campus locations) and HLA. These laboratories, excluding Microbiology and Outreach and Courier Services, provide on-call services for off-shifts. The Fast Flow Laboratory covers stat testing procedures such as cerebrospinal fluid gram staining for off-shift Microbiology samples. The Medical University Hospital Authority provides tests not available at the Ralph H. Johnson VAMC or other local facilities. Test results are of an urgent nature, and/or specimen stability is not viable for transportation to distant laboratories. STAT specimens for select procedures require results within 24 (or less) and include, but are not limited to, Mycobacteria smears, clotting factor assays, immunoperoxidase stains, and therapeutic drug levels. The Medical University Hospital Authority offers 24/7 courier service to expedite testing services and they are located 0.4 miles from the Ralph H Johnson VAMC. The Medical University Hospital Authority performs accurate laboratory testing; provides test results within acceptable time frames for the testing specified; finalizes laboratory results/reports are faxed to the P&LMS administrative office; delivers hard copies of reports to the P&LMS administrative office; provides courier service to pick up laboratory specimens Monday Friday from 08:00 am to 05:00 pm along with courier service for laboratory specimen s pick up for nights and weekends. The Medical University Hospital Authority laboratory accepts specimens seven (7) days a week, and offer testing services available 24 hours a day, for tests that can be ordered with STAT urgency. The requested laboratory testing services are not available from any other local institutions and sending samples to a distant laboratory is unacceptable due to the compromise in specimens and the limitation of turnaround times on test reports.
