Data reported for Aramark Corp.'s emergency department clients in MODERN HEALTHCARE's Contract Management Survey (Sept. 4, p. 76) were restated from last year's reporting. In this year's survey, the company reported it managed 350 hospital clients in 1993. In last year's survey, the company reported 456 hospital clients for 1993. Some 355 emergency department contracts were managed in 1994. The company says it changed reporting methods to render a consistent comparison.
Sodexho USA managed 182 food service contracts for hospital clients in 1994 and 202 hospital clients in 1993. The data were erroneously placed in the financial management category of MODERN HEALTHCARE's Contract Management Survey (Sept. 4). The company places fifth in the top five list of food service contractors.
