Data collection tool, was researcher-designed checklist. Data were analyzed using DEAP 2/1 software and ANOVA, HSD and TUKEY tests.

Results: There was a significant difference between the mean productivity of three hospital groups due to the existence of various ownership(p=%012), Also a significant difference was observed between the mean of technological efficiency of the three groups of hospitals(p=%006), No significant differences was found between the mean of technical efficiency of the three groups of hospitals(p=%23).

Conclusion: Cause of the variation in total factor productivity in private hospitals, is due to their suitable production technology which is always improved. But in respect to their efficiency promotion and optimization of production and products, there was no distinguishing difference with other hospitals.
