ABSTRACT
The article discusses the capacity management crisis within the healthcare centers in the U.S. The crisis of capacity management has been a by-product of the continuous decline of the number of hospitals and the increase of the number of admitted patients. To respond to such issue, several options have been carried out which include the building of more beds, the addition of functional capacity through the improvement of patient throughput.
