Abstract : A preliminary model for manpower and budget resource allocation in a Navy Regional Medical Center is formulated. Oakland Naval Hospital is used to illustrate the concept. A functional budget structure is proposed for management use in resource allocation decisions. Submodels of important supporting elements in the functional structure are developed. The problem of suitable definitions for patient category inputs is addressed. The model is suitable for use in analysis of many different types of health facilities with modification as discussed in the paper. (Author)
