In the news article "Can risky mergers save hospital-based research?" by Wade Roush (19 May, p. 968), the statement that University Hospitals of Cleveland rose from 20th in the rankings of teaching hospitals funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1991 to 12th at present was incorrect. In fact, it was Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), with which University Hospitals of Cleveland is affiliated, that received $69 million in NIH grants in 1993, making it the 20th largest recipient of such grants among medical centers; the university then received $97 million in 1994, raising its rank to 12th. About $15 million of the increase, or 53%, was attributable to CWRU's 1992 affiliation with Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Other hospitals affiliated with Case Western include MetroHealth Medical Center, Mount Sinai Medical Center, St. Luke's Medical Center, and Cleveland Veterans' Affairs Medical Center.
