Summary/Abstract: The paper compares the state of the technical efficiency of acute bed care in basic medical branches - the internal medicine, surgery, gynaecology and paediatrics for 2003 and 2013 by individual regions of the Czech Republic. The development of the technical efficiency is tested by means of the input-oriented Free Disposal Hull model (FDH). Three models were tested (M(2003), M(2013), M(hypothetical)) and they are based on the same input and output variables. There were chosen two input variables, namely the number of beds and number of physicians. The output variable was the number of hospitalized patients in basic medical branches in the regions of the Czech Republic.
