Rochester-based Carestream is getting a multi-million-dollar contract from the federal government to supply picture archiving and communications system products to the four U.S. military branches. It is a vote of confidence and an extension of the services Carestream has provided for the past five years.

The announcement was made by Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (D-Fairport), who said the company's selection for the contract was helped by the fact they have "always provided exceptional medical imaging services to the Department of Defense, Veterans Administration and other federal partners."

According to Carestream, the contract has a potential value of up to $150 million in purchases of medical image management products and services for government facilities. The contract includes a five-year base period and one five-year option extending to 2026.

Carestream provides medical and dental imaging, healthcare information technology and advanced materials for the precision films and electronics markets.
