Is a Hospital a Mechanistic or an Organic Organization Form?

Sounds like you are attending the course organization sciences.. I am too. Did you find the answer? I was thinking the organization would be a typical mechanistic form.

Hospital is a Mechanistic Form of Organization

@Cornelissen: Yes I found the answer and I agree that it is a mechanic type if we go to the Minzberg`s classification of the organization, we also see that a hospital has many layers of of hierarchy and bureaucracy.

A Hospital is a Mechanistic Organization

A hospital can indeed be pictured as a mechanistic form of an organization in terms of Burns & Stalker's typology. The nature of the tasks performed and the way they are distributed clearly puts them in this class. Thanks.
