  Aims: This study was conducted in order to determine the key factors in selecting an appropriate location for war field health care center and selecting the most proper location for building a desert hospital.

  Methods: The study is of mathematical modeling type. Brain storming, multi-voting and nominal group techniques were used for extracting key factors and Analytic Hierarchy Process technique was used for selecting the most appropriate location in the case scenario. 15 health authorities, commanders and deputies who had a crucial role during Holly Defense in managing the war health center, were selected as the expert group.

  Results: The most influential factors and their relative values from experts’ view were the possibility of performing insider/enemy operations (stability of battlefield), number of possible injured and wounded people in area, land status and the geography of region, condition of roads and connecting passageway and finally desert hospital distance from frontlines of battlefield. By placing these weights in decision making model and with the hierarchical analysis for the given scenario and completing the model using responders, the location B was selected as the best point for construction of desert hospital.

  Conclusion: Regarding the logical stability in thinking analysis model, one can make coherent integrated relations between subjects and different phenomena and ultimately making decision that would follow the most benefits.
