The statistical population included all hospitals of West Azarbaijan province (22 teaching hospitals affiliated with Urmia University of Medical Sciences) and 8 non-teaching hospitals). The standard checklist of the Ministry of Health was used to record information and calculate performance indicators of hospitals. The data were analyzed using Excel 2016 and SPSS22 software.
Results: In terms of the bed occupancy ratio index, 32% of teaching hospitals in the province were in desirable condition, 18% in average condition, and 50% in undesirable condition. However, 100% of teaching hospitals that located in the center of the province were in desirable condition. While this index in non-teaching hospitals was desirable at 25%, average at 25%, and undesirable at 50%. In terms of the patient stay, 77% favorable, 5% average, and 18% undesirable in teaching hospitals, and 87.5% desirable and 12.5% undesirable in non-teaching hospitals.
