Organizations are subject to decisions regarding the location of facilities and the required minimum number of the facilities to satisfy certain needs. In this regard, p-median and set covering problems are discussed in a way that they are not adequate under some real-world scenarios. Hence, this paper introduces an optimization model for providing the required number of facilities and their locations to serve different sets of nodes (i.e., departments) within a specified distance range. A deterministic integer programming model is developed and implemented on a real-world problem.
