Abstract : The study investigates the cost of operating a military ambulatory clinic and compares the cost with that of a similar civilian facility. By taking into account, direct costs and indirect costs, actual operating costs and personnel costs are calculated to allow for the comparison of a civilian versus military facility based on the cost per patient visit. The study concluded that the military ambulatory clinic has operated with a lower cost per patient visit than a similiar civilian ambulatory clinic. The study recommends a process to use in a justifying possible future funding in a military facility. Keywords: Cost analysis; cost effectiveness; Health care; Theses.
