Ascension Health, St. Louis, said it has signed a 10-year, $1.35 billion information technology services contract with Computer Sciences Corp. under which CSC will manage IT operations for all 67 acute-care hospitals and related facilities across the healthcare system. The agreement, effective Jan. 1, builds on a seven-year, $200 million agreement Ascension signed in September 2003 for CSC to manage IT operations for the health system's central office as well as the three hospitals and related facilities of Carondelet Health Network, an Ascension affiliate organization in Tucson, Ariz. The 10-year contract includes responsibility for help-desk, network, security and telecommunications services as well as computing functions at the server, mainframe and desktop levels. -- by John Morrissey
