There is no doubt that the demand for medical care is growing exponentially as a result of the increasing number of citizens. This scenario is also happening in the city of Medan, in the province of North Sumatra, Indonesia. Therefore, capacity management systems requiring details of beds and the availability of nursing staff should be considered for inpatient care. This paper presents a capacity model that provides a perspective on the capacity of nursing staff needed and the opportunities for increasing the use of ward capacity. A capacity model is created to measure the resources required. The problem is defined by the formulation of a mixed integer nonlinear optimization. The model is placed in a hospital in Medan City. The result is shown in the report.
