The appropriateness of the planned number of acute care beds in certain hospital construction projects proposed for funding by the Indian Health Service (IHS) was questioned.

The methodology used by the IHS to determine the bed sizes of the planned hospitals would result in the construction of too many beds. The IHS failed to take into account the declining trends in the use of inpatient hospital facilities. Although limited to the Navajo area, the analysis indicated that similar conditions may exist in other IHS areas where major hospital construction is planned.
