    In this paper, the maintenance store in a hospital is going to be designed. For the calculation of the criticalness of the spare parts, the critical equipment multicriteria classifying method has been used. This method has been made more specific with the addition of decision criteria and their levels for the needs of a new hospital. This study will classify the spare part as normal, emergency or not storable, which will determine the stock management model to be used: the fixed order interval model or immediate replacement. The initial charge, average monthly consumption and the time needed for the replacement will be calculated for each spare part. The results obtained will ensure maximum availability, will enable the amount of stored spare parts to be kept to a minimum and will ensure a correct response as regards the critical elements of the facilities and medical equipment.
