Abstract:

In order to compare the consumer acceptability of food and food service at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center under military and contracted operations, the authors conducted acceptability studies three months before and three and nine months after the conversion to contract food service. The data were analyzed by an analysis of variance or loglinear models. Results clearly showed a decrease in consumer acceptance by both patients and hospital staff under contracted food service operations.
