Abstract

Maintenance costs of public hospitals in Syria is noticed to be highly expensive, beside hindering hospital jobs technically and humanly. It is noticed that most of public hospitals in Syria need, after a short time relatively from its operating start, comprehensive maintenance or rehabilitation with high expenses. This problem needs studying and analyzing reasons and factors to which they lead. The goal of This research is reducing high maintenance cost in hospitals, by determining factors affecting that cost, and observing them in future to reach the requested goal. To perform the above mentioned, the states of many public hospitals in Latakia and Tartus were studied, accordingly, factors that affect maintenance costs in hospitals were determined in addition to specifying the importance and effect degree for these factors. Furthermore, the software FuzzyTECH was utilized in analyzing factors and offering the ability of forecasting variations in maintenance cost on the basis of the evaluation and behavior of each factor affect it.
