Orangeburg company awarded mobile hospital contract


DHS Systems LLC, a military contractor based in Orangeburg, and Brazilian medical supply distributor Oscar Iskin have been awarded a $1.2 million contract by the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro to provide two mobile field hospitals.

The hospitals are designed for use during major emergencies such as a flood, hurricane or disease outbreak.

DHS Systems and Oscar Iskin began working together in the fall of 2008 following a request by the Brazilian government. The mobile hospitals, offering more than 2,000 square feet of space, can be connected to create a single facility if needed.
