Abstract: Operation research concepts can help healthcare facilities with unplanned situations, crisis, and handling of supplies, utilities, and strategies. A methodology for dealing with the Man-Hour (MH) distribution in a cellular type Healthcare Organization (HCO) is introduced, and its goal is to maximize the use of resources and workforce. The problem is modeled via Linear Programming (LP), which results in a minimal cost flow problem with the simplex algorithm. The proposed framework (MCFP) can motivate individuals, reward ability and individual knowledge (not only moneywise) plus improving patient care. Such model can help to devise a software tool for decision making with performance and efficiency; it brings direct profit for the HCO and its staff due to the superior management of their MHs, and it increases the benefits to the community they serve. The methodology models MHs in an HCO to optimize management, decision-making tasks, and resource distribution
