The extreme shortage of old-age service facilities in rural areas in China is in sharp contrast with the growing elderly population, which leads to the increasingly conspicuous rural pension problems. To do well the configuration of medical facilities is very important to the improvement of the old-age facilities system. This paper takes the community as the research area of the town of the pavilion in Shaanxi Province, takes the optimal location of the medical facilities space in the rural community as the research object, and uses the GIS method to optimize the location of the medical facilities space layout. The results show that the existing medical facilities in the store community are too concentrated in the central administrative Region, the overall distribution of medical facilities is not balanced, and the resources of medical facilities in the surrounding elderly population are scarce. The results obtained by optimizing site selection can provide scientific reference for the layout of medical facilities in future research area.
