SAN RAMON, Calif., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Keane, Inc., a $1 billion-plus global services firm that specializes in enabling transformation of its clients' business and IT functions, today announced that it has signed a $1.5 million five-year contract with Golden Living, a network of long-term care facilities that includes 331 skilled nursing facilities and 19 assisted living facilities in 22 states.
