Palembang comprises 16 districts, but in this research, the focus area is limited to 8 districts namely Sukarami, Sako, Sematang Borang, Kalidoni, Kemuning, Ilir Timur II, Seberang Ulu II, and Plaju. There are currently only 7 districts that have emergency installations. This research is designed to optimize the number and location of emergency installation in Palembang. Optimization of emergency installation location is required to improve health services in Palembang. This optimization uses
more » ... optimization uses covering-based models that include location set covering problem and maximal covering location problem. The solutions are obtained by using branch and bound solver on Lingo 13.0. The results of the computation with the best time of 15 minutes are 6 locations of emergency installations in order to serve the existing 8 districts.
