Abstract: Financial crises in the Colombian public hospitals call for a detailed analysis on how its different health services work, in order to detect the failures and attain a better use of the resources. is research examined the efficacy levels in 44 public hospitals throughout the Valle del Cauca province, covering the gynecology and obstetrics, dentistry, and emergency services between 2007 and 2014. A recent non-parametric deterministic method was used. us far, it has not been applied to health scientic studies in Colombia. It combines the multidirectional efficacy analysis with other relevant techniques in order to compare groups with different efficiency levels. Results showed that more than 60% of the hospitals were in the poor efficiency level, which evinces they are not making an appropriate use of their inputs. is report is expected to encourage the bureaucrats to include evaluation techniques like this in their decision-making processes. © 2018 Pontificia Universidad Javeriana.
