This paper introduces a Multiobjective Hierarchical Model (MOHLM) for locating public facilities on a transportation network. The proposed model combines the multiobjective nature of the location-allocation problem with the hierarchical character of some public service systems, such as health care delivery.

The model examines both maximum and total weighted travel time, facility utilization, and total travel time from the master facility to the attached subordinate facilities. An iterative goal programing algorithm is used to solve the problem.

An example related to the location of health care facilities in a rural area of Greece is used to illustrate the application of the proposed model.
