Introduction: choosing the right place to set up a health care center, including important decisions that can have significant impacts on the functioning of the health care center, adjacent uses, and the pedestrian network around. To have it in the long run. The purpose of this study is to prioritize the factors affecting the location of medical complexes over urban pedestrian networks and present a location model.
Methods: This is a descriptive-analytical research. The required information has been used from the master plan reports, the detailed plan, the Yazd city transportation plan, the field observation and the survey. In addition, two types of questionnaires were designed. The first questionnaire was designed to identify the problems of the location of existing medical centers and the second questionnaire was designed to prioritize the effective factors in locating the medical centers. The results were analyzed by SPSS-22 ,AHP Expert Choice، ArcGIS
Results: The results showed that seven main criteria are effective in locating health care centers, including: 1-therapeutic use with first-class communication network, 2-distance from Mosiley, 3-distance from industrial workshops, 4-distance. 5- Distance from major business centers, 6-distance from bus terminals and railway station and 7-intersection to health center. Also, according to the obtained criteria and the proposed method, suitable location for construction of new medical clinics and complexes in Yazd city was identified as a case study. Finally, a suitable location model for medical complexes was presented.
Conclusion: therapeutic use with first-class communication network in order to provide fast and desirable access to clients, is a priority for the selection agents of the location of medical complexes.
