Background & Aims of the Study: Organizational health in hospitals can reduce medical errors, increase the quality of care, improve organizational learning, and enhance collaboration, innovation, and cost reduction. The remarkable success of successful organizations lies in organizational culture and employee beliefs. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between organizational culture and organizational health in the employees of Iran teaching hospitals.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was conducted on 946 employees of public hospitals in Iran, in 2019, including all the employees of 17 hospitals selected by random clustering. The assessment tools were the standard questionnaires of Edgard Schein’s Organizational Culture and Organizational Health Inventory. One-sample t-test was used to determine the organizational health of the selected hospitals. Pearson’s correlation coefficient was also utilized to determine the relationship between organizational culture and organizational health. Furthermore, the data were analyzed using SPSS software (version 25).

In addition, about (61.7%) and (23%) of the participants had a bachelor’s degree and 10-14 years of work experience, respectively. Moreover, the results of this study based on Pearson’s correlation coefficients demonstrated that there was a positive and significant correlation between the component of organizational culture with organizational health (r=0.94) and all the dimensions of organizational health component at the institutional (r=0.92), administrative (r=0.92), and technical (r =0.93) levels with a 95% confidence interval (P≤0.05).

Conclusion: The results of this study indicated that there was a positive and significant correlation between the component of organizational culture with organizational health and its dimensions. Therefore, it is necessary to make decisions focusing on the organizational culture of hospitals and steps to coordinate individuals’ values and norms for the promotion of organizational culture.
