dc.description.abstractWe will never know the operational battle space of the future, so medical assets need to be flexible and agile to conform to a variety of environments and threats. We utilize a multistage optimization model and data from past contingency operations to analyze potential configurations of a robust theater-deployable hospital. The current Army theater-deployable hospital has 248 beds, and our analysis shows it is over-capacitated for the current brigade-centric force structure. Based on our analysis, the optimal role-3 medical treatment facility is between 44 beds and 124 beds, with smaller wards, and the ability to combine hospitals to create larger hospitals. The smaller role-3 medical treatment facility better suits the tactical and operational employment of medical assets and supports the strategic plans for regionally aligned forces.en_US
