Location Theory and Public Facilities: A Case Study of Health-Care Facilities in Ughelli-South Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria



This study examined the distribution and patronage pattern of public health-care facilities in Ughelli-South Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria.  In doing this, existing location theories were examined for concepts and ideas that provide theoretical guidelines for issues relating to the location and patronage of public facilities.  Furthermore, attempts were also made to see how the spatial distribution and patronage pattern of health-care facilities in the study area accord with these theoretical guidelines.  Some problems facing the health-care delivery system in the study area were identified and appropriate remedial measures were suggested for implementation.

KEYWORDS: Location, Health-Care Facilities, Patronage, Spatial Distribution.
