During the crisis, for the importance of early treatment, the role of the hospital is twice. Health centers, as the main organizations involved in disasters, require a program to deal with events.

Materials and methods: Cross-sectional descriptive method of functional analysis has been used for the present study. A sample taken from the population of military hospitals consisted of five hospitals moreover, the data collection instruments included questionnaire and checklist and the data were collected through observation and question and answer.

Results: Generally, all the hospitals were considered the places for increasing the capacity of victims of the crisis. Some of these places had the facilities while the others lacked. The only hazard that all the hospitals have considered the possibility of its occurrence was the overloaded hospital caused by war, accident, or natural disasters such as earthquake. Also, earthquake has been known as the most likely hazards than the others by all the hospitals in Tehran. In the functional safety assessment, the total average of the area was 69/9% and it is equivalent to the medium.

In the non-structural safety assessment, the total average was 65% and it is equivalent to medium. According to the findings, four hospitals had the average rating and one had the near poor rating.

Discussion and conclusion: Based on the results of the T-test, there were significant differences between the mean percent of hospitals in both fields of functional safety and non-structural safety (p=0/047). The average of functional safety area was higher than non-structural safety area. The reason may be the low cost of this area in comparison with non-structural area. There were no significant differences between these two areas.
