This paper shows from a methodological point of view the outcomes of the technical-environmental feasibility study for the location of the New Hospital of Region Valle d’Aosta in the North-West of Italy.

The analysis of the areas has been carried out referring to physical (size and environmental system), organizational-functional (functional frame of the territory, network facilities supply, health services, accessibility) and legal aspects (properties and constraints), in order to interpret all the information of these contexts without overlooking the territorial and environmental standards and laws. The most satisfying hypothesis of location with reference to the conditions emerging from the analytical steps has been defined by a comparative matrix, in which every aspect has been assessed by a qualitative judgement.

Abstract

This paper shows from a methodological point of view the outcomes of the technical-environmental feasibility study for the location of the New Hospital of Region Valle d’Aosta in the North-West of Italy. The most important goal of this study was to support the decision making process about the hypothesis of spotting the hospital in four different areas identified by Region Valle d’Aosta. The analysis of the areas has been carried out referring to physical (size and environmental system), organizational-functional (functional frame of the territory, network facilities supply, health services, accessibility) and legal aspects (properties and constraints), in order to interpret all the information of these contexts without overlooking the territorial and environmental standards and laws. The most satisfying hypothesis of location with reference to the conditions emerging from the analytical steps has been defined by a comparative matrix, in which every aspect has been assessed by a qualitative judgement. In order to give the complexity of the transformability conditions of the four areas, the judgement has been scaled in different levels. Furthermore this paper outlines how a multricriteria evaluation tool can steer the decision making process to the principle of clearness, making possible to run through again all its own steps.
