Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS) – “Home” Hospital Delineation (2011)

2011

Client: Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS)

GBHS was interested in finding all postal codes that fell within 20 kilometres of all hospitals within their jurisdiction, mainly Lions Head, Markdale, Meaford, Owen Sound, Southampton and Wiarton hospitals.  The purpose was to help determine a “home” hospital location for patients who live in surrounding areas.  Postal code centroid point data was intersected with 20 kilometre buffers around each hospital location.  A list of postal codes that fell within each buffer was created.  Postal codes that fell within overlapping buffers were delineated to the nearest hospital.  GBHS also requested that a map showing the 20 kilometre buffer zone for each hospital.
