While medical services are recognized to be crucial in a process of disease treatment, the research has been done with the service space and waiting time in a medical institution. This paper`s objective is to evaluate the waiting areas of lobby, outpatient clinic, operating room in a general hospital and to draw factors of architecture design for further improvement, identifying strengths and weaknesses to be analyzed in terms of medical service. Research method is to define concepts of waiting time through literature review and advanced researches, analyze characteristics of architectural plan through drawing analysis and site survey. This research will contribute to the improvements of the planning methods which will reduce the waiting time and increase the quality of medical service.
