Today, the world is moving towards becoming smart. Tools and equipment are somewhat smart and now it’s time to use them for making smart the organizations and special places. Integration of smart devices and using them in a special place makes it to be smart place. Human is always looking for the best decision as soon as possible in an emergency situation. This becomes more important when we speak about human lives. Having a smart system for hospitals can reduce the concerns. In this paper first the ideas to have a smart hospital are presented and then a Petri Net model is designed for it. The detailed rules for design of Petri Net model make it easy to transform the initial heuristic selection criteria in formalized procedures of model construction. The model proposed in this paper can be used in different levels with proper and purposefully development.
