Title: Location of Non-Obnoxious Facility (Hospital) in Ketu South District
Authors: Doe, Hede Richmond
Issue Date: 18-Dec-2013
Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to model the location of two emergency hospitals for Ketu South district due to the newness of the district. This is to help solve the immediate health needs of the people in the district. One essential way of doing this is to locate two hospitals which will be closer to all the towns and villages in order to reduce the cost of travelling and the distances people have to access the facilities (hospital). In doing this, p-median and heuristics(RH1, RH2 and RRH) were employed to minimize the distances people have to travel to the demand point (hospitals) to access the facilities. Floyd-warshall algorithm was also adopted to connect the ten (10) selected towns and villages together. In conclusion, the best two sites for the location of the facilities in theKetuSouth districtwere Klikor-Agborume and Ehi.
