Organization of Hospitals
If you have ever noticed hospitals are very well organized. Not only with paper work and other medical records, but even with the different departments and their locations (1). According to smallbusiness.chron.com "Organizations that have this sort of requirement usually take on a vertical organizational structure" (Feigenbaum, 1). Usually when you enter a hospital, it's basically like a clinic; where you visit a specific doctor and nurse if you're ill. As you go up the floors they have sections like a sections for dental, or for surgeries, and scanning/x-ray. In hospitals they are most likely going to put departments that are similar on the same floor.
