 CMS GETS SONOMA DETENTION FACILITIES HEALTH CARE CONTRACT
 SANTA ROSA, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Correctional Medical Systems, Inc. (CMS), the nation's leader in correctional health care, has begun providing health and dental services to the Sonoma County Detention Facilities in Santa Rosa, CMS's first contract in the state.
 Jerry Schriver, CMS president, said, "This is an important step for us and we're looking forward to this new challenge. We greatly appreciate the trust being placed in us by Sonoma County."
 As a leader in the jail health care field, CMS has developed programs tailored specifically for inmate needs. The Sonoma staff of more than 20 health care professionals will provide a comprehensive medical program to the 800 inmates housed in two locations in Santa Rosa, which are state-of-the-art correctional facilities. The CMS contract calls for accreditation of the medical services by the California Medical Association (CMA) which sets the standard of quality for health care within the state.
 The CMS regional office is located in Mission Viejo, Calif. The company presently serves more than 76,000 inmates at 116 sites in 17 states. CMS employs more than 2,000 health care professionals and contracts with more than 500 physicians nationwide.
 According to Regional Manager Sue Buckley, "We're proud to be in corrections health care and our employees have a real sense of mission, which I'm sure will be carried to our California operations."
 CMS is a division of ARA Services, one of the world leaders in providing diversified services for health care, textile rental and maintenance, education and magazine and book distribution. The company had 1991 annual revenues of almost $5 billion.
