Research on Optimum Aging of Medical Facilities in Resource-exhaustion-type Industrial Towns Based on Balance of Supply and Demand—Taking Jiawang District in Xuzhou as an Example

Liang Sun, Wenliang Li


This paper starts from contradictions*between senior citizens’ medical demands and provision of medical facilities and intends to study the optimum aging distribution of the current medical facilities space in resource-exhaustion-type industrial towns, which will be of important significance to the planning and construction of medical facilities during the development process of industrial towns. This paper takes Jiawang District in Xuzhou as research objects and starts from supply and requisitioning parties on the basis of minimum quantity demand of senior citizens’ medical facilities in Jiawang District, intending to study the equity of maximum provision service scope and rationality of nearest hospital distance; thereby providing certain research basis and optimization basis for optimum aging configuration of medical facilities in industrial towns. Aging of population has become a severe social problem faced by all countries in the world. “hospitals for senior citizens” is an important guarantee for the health of senior citizens. To reach these objectives, there must be rational space configuration of medical service facilities. Compared with ordinary towns, resource-exhaustion-type industrial towns are under huge influences of the growth, maturity and decline of resources. Compared with ordinary towns, industrial towns have different employment structure, transportation network and space distribution and their public service facility configuration methods are different from other towns. Resource-exhaustion-type industrial towns have high degree of aging, so they have urgent demands for better and fairer medical resource configuration.
