Abstract:
The main objective of the paper is to make a SWOT analysis of the Facility Management of general hospitals for active treatment in Bulgaria. Facility management includes management methods and techniques of building management, infrastructure management of an organization and methods of overall harmonization of the work environment of the organization. The applied SWOT analysis of the facility management is based on the example of the Military Medical Academy – Sofia which is a medical, educational and scientific-research institution with an internationally acknowledged reputation. During the transition period the healthcare sector in Bulgaria is characterized by significant problems – under staffing, supply shortages, brain drain, huge debts and chronic lack of money. The reviewed hospital – Military Medical Academy-Sofia – is no exception in this respect. Currently, there is a crucial need to limit the economic costs of the MMA-Sofia and, in particular, to constraint the cost of utilities, which account for more than 33% of the total economic costs. The opportunities for development of the MMA-Sofia are also associated with investments in modern technical equipment, improvements in the built infrastructure, development of activities, related to further treatment, rehabilitation and care for the sick and the elderly people, and creation and maintenance of a Single Information Center in help of the patients, and medical and administrative staff of the hospital..
