Decision Making in Hospital Administration and Medical Care was first published in 1960. This casebook based on experiences and administrative problems encountered in actual hospital situations will serve as a text for beginning students in graduate programs in hospital administration, as course material in allied fields, and as a reference work for hospital administrators. The case material deals with problem definition, determination of needs for hospital facilities, establishment of new general hospitals, external relations, internal relations, internal hospital operations, hospital adaptation to environmental changes, comprehensive and complex cases, and "curbstone" cases. Most of the cases are derived from the files of James A. Hamilton Association, a consulting service.
