Quality health care is one of the most important services in modern civilization since it enhances the general well-being of the people. A growing body of evidence indicates that the geographic distribution of health care providers is essential to the overall health of a population. Spatial characteristics are considered in geographic information systems (GIS) research, while non-spatial characteristics are considered in other types of study (McLafferty, 2003). Prospective accessibility is predicated on the assumption that all members of a given population are potential consumers of medical facilities located within a certain distance or travel time of medical facilities (a catchment area). The institutions that are RISE Supported are shown on the map below, along with the driving distances between them and the surrounding community. When driving, the distances are shown in kilometres (km).
