Hospital and Catchment Community

Catchment community  of a hospital is the community that the hospital has identified to serve.

Catchment community of a hospital can be defined based upon a number of factors including geographic boundaries, distance to the hospital, and actual travel time to the hospital.

A hospital should target solving the health problems of its catchment community.

I like to use the picture below to illustrate the concept of catchment community of  a hospital.
