Abstract : The purpose of the research is to (1) review the idea of the grouping of obstetrical units for decreasing the duplication of maternity facilities and increasing maternity occupancy rates; (2) introduce inter-hospital cooperation and the admission of other than maternity patients to the maternity suite as solutions to increase obstetrical occupancy rates and decrease obstetrical occupancy rate fluctuations; (3) demonstrate the feasibility of analyzing random processes within hospitals and statistically examining factors involved with human behavior; (4) offer analytical methods and techniques for attacking hospital problems.
