Question

I am trying to find out what the maintenance staff ratio is per sq. ft. for medical clinics (not hospitals). The maintenance staff does mechanical maintenance of HVAC, plumbing, repairs, preventative maintenance, etc.


Answer

I cannot answer this. The age of the facility and its equipment will be a factor. The size of the facility may well determine whether there is an in-house staff or if the work is contracted out.
I cannot imagine there is a ratio that has any meaning apart from the facility in which it was developed.
If any one reads this and has an answer, please send it to me and I'll be pleased to pass it on.
