Estimating the Size and Composition of the Hospital Maintenance Staff

Whitestone Research recently completed a report that describes an approach for estimating the size and composition of the maintenance staff for hospitals. Using data from a recent survey published by the New England Healthcare Engineering Society (1997), a predictive model with variables representing hospital size, staff productivity, and maintenance contract costs was explored, but only hospital size was found to be statistically significant. Based on this finding, a simple predictive equation is defined. The composition of the estimated staff is determined by extrapolation from data published by the International Facility Management Association (1994).
