This research suggests an approach constructed on the connotation of plithogenic theory and VIKOR (VIseKriterijumska Optimizacija I Kompromisno Resenje) technique to come up with a methodical procedure to assess the infirmary serving under a framework of plithogenic theory, where the ambiguity, incomplete information, qualitative information, approximate evaluation, imprecision and uncertainty are addressed with semantic expressions determined by plithogenic numbers and computing of contradiction degrees of attribute values. This research stratifies the plithogenic multi criteria decision making (MCDM) strategy for defining the significant weights of assessing standards, and the VIKOR technique is applied for enhancing the serving efficiency classifications of the possible substitutes. An experimental issue, including 11 assessing standards, 3 private and 2 general hospitals in Zagazig, has been evaluated by 3 assessors from several areas of medical activities, asked to validate the suggested strategy. In this research, we give some definitions of the plithogenic environment, which is more general and comprehensive than fuzzy, intuitionistic fuzzy and neutrosophic ones. The plithogeny is interested in the contradiction degrees between attribute values that help in better calculating the aggregations. We conducted the data analysis and the results showed us that the serving efficiency of private medical centers is superior than that of general medical centers due to the fact that public medical centers are scarcely supported by governmental institutions. The private medical centers have to ward themselves to keep possession of bringing patients or attract patients. We conducted the sensitivity analysis of the achieved results, to verify their validity, and to find out to what extent the different values affect the ranking of available alternatives.
