Simulation modeling has become a well-established tool to aid healthcare decision makers in evaluating alternative system design in order to improve hospital performances. A simulation model is developed in this study to evaluate an alternative planning strategy for an operating theatre of a medium-size university hospital in Belgium. Real data are used in this model to derive the simulation parameters and are collected from a one-year observation period where a 'modified block scheduling' strategy is currently implemented. This paper is concluded with some suggestions for improving the hospital service efficiency.
