ABSTRACT
Current study attempted to identify dimensions of hospital service quality and analyzed relationships between service quality dimensions and overall patient satisfaction within different hospital service provider categories. The research was conducted with 225 patients at public, university and private hospitals in two southern metropolis of Turkey. Patients' service quality perceptions were measured with four factors; services before the treatment, physician services, care for private needs-laboratory services and perceptions about physical environment. First factor analysis and variance analysis was conducted. Then it was followed by regression analyses. Multiple regression analyses revealed that services before the treatment and perceptions about physical environment were significant determiners of overall patient satisfaction at public hospitals whereas physician services, care for private needs-laboratory services and perceptions about physical environment were significant indicators of overall patient satisfaction at university hospitals. As for private hospitals, all four factors show significant relationships with overall patient satisfaction.
