The Effects of Environmental Characteristics on the Structure of Hospital Clusters.
Fennell, Mary L.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v25 n3 p485-510 Sep 1980
The population ecology view that variation in sets or clusters of organizations should be isomorphic with variation in cluster environment was used to explain structural variation among hospital clusters. Cluster differentiation seems to be casually affected by range of services, average hospital size, and the periodic closing of hospitals. (Author/IRT)
