The purpose of this study is to determine a physician staffing mix which will meet the needs of the Bayne-Jones Army Community Hospital catchment area population following the downsizing of Fort Polk. The active duty and dependent of active duty beneficiary populations at Fort Polk will be reduced by approximately one-third over the next two years due to Congressional mandates. As a result of this large reduction in the number of medical care beneficiaries, the number of authorized personnel at Bayne-Jones, to include physicians, will be reduced. The hospital commander must decide which medical specialties will absorb these reductions. After a projection of future patient demand and an analysis of several factors important in staffing decision making, a staffing algorithm is presented to assist the commander in his decision making regarding physician staffing mix.
