IPR International, the premier Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) provider in the mid-Atlantic region, has been awarded a five-year contract from the Vincera Institute to provide Disaster Recovery (DR), data protection, and backup services in its newly opened surgery center and rehabilitation facilities at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.
Established in 2013 by Dr. William Myers, the Vincera Institute is dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of core muscle injuries, also known as sports hernias. Dr. Myers and his team perform specialized procedures in the Vincera Surgery Center to treat and repair core muscle and hip injuries sustained by professional, collegial, and recreational athletes from around the country. The Vincera Institute’s new contract with IPR will ensure that its patients’ data is secure and recoverable whenever needed, allowing Vincera’s staff to concentrate on its core mission of relieving patients’ pain and helping them resume athletic activity.
“IPR has proven that they understand healthcare center challenges. Their off-site backup and storage solutions provide us with the security we need to maintain operations if a power failure were to happen on-site,” says Vincera Surgery Center Administrator Dominic Vendeta, RN, BSN. “As a healthcare facility, it is crucial to have a full disaster recovery plan like the one IPR offers.”
IPR is an established DR solutions provider within the healthcare industry, and the Vincera contract extends its client portfolio in this important vertical market. In all, IPR has more than 100 clients representing all vertical markets, including legal services, financial services, and insurance, among several others.
“This new contract with Vincera solidifies our stake in the market to provide IT services to healthcare organizations,” says IPR Executive Vice President David McLaughlin. “More than that, it really solidifies their business as well. They are a brand-new facility, their surgery center is up and running, and this is the final piece of the puzzle. Now they can go to their clients and say, ‘We have your data protected, it is in full compliance, and we can recover it in case of disaster. IPR can protect your data, and we will be up and running no matter what.’”
