Our objective was to assess the adequacy of the military services economic analyses in estimating the proper size for a proposed military medical facilitys inpatient capacity after taking into account the available medical care alternatives and projected inpatient workloads. Because the four facilities final sizes and building configurations had not been determined when we completed our work, we did not assess the reasonableness of projected staff needs and availability.
