Structure / Services

Help with searching for structure and services

The structure and services search allows you to search for structural data, such as a hospital's number of beds and number of cases, and/or for various services data, such as equipment facilities and medical service provision.

The search finds hospitals that meet all your chosen search criteria (AND search). If you select too many criteria at once, the search result may be virtually zero, indicating that no hospital meets your chosen criteria combination.

An exception to this is the search for specialist departments. In this case, both an AND and an OR search are possible.

1. Search for structural data

If you are looking for hospitals that fulfil certain size criteria, you can enter a minimum or maximum number of beds and/or number of cases.

2. Search for services data

The services data search screens display search options according to hospital services data in the form of lists of options and check lists. In each list of options, you can select more than one item.

The following options are provided in the services data search:
