Then, using a decision model of TOPSIS in GIS software, valuation of criteria has been studied and appropriate maps is prepared, finally map that represents the best location for the construction of hospitals in this area is extracted.

  Results: with combination and overlaying of data layers, the final map was obtained and determined that the northeastern section (Cross Resalat Street and cabli), central (martyr Motahari streets and Miremad) and southeast (Bakhshi fard and part of Damavand street) in district 7 are have priority and more points to construct hospitals.
