The aim of this work is to introduce a new model for intra-hospital routing of patients, considering both client- and management related issues. Patients in a hospital have a fixed appointment, such as x-rays or ultrasonic and due to medical reasons they cannot go on their own, so they will be escorted by porters. In our model logistical costs for the usage of porters and patient inconvenience will be minimized. We show that the different developed model variants are tractable for realistic problem instances of medium-sized hospitals.
