Nowadays, development of any society depends on the health of the organization. A healthy organization is where people love the work and are proud to be part of that organization. This study investigated the relationship between organizational health and organizational commitment of personnel in selected hospitals affiliated with Ahwaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences in 2011.
This study was a cross-sectional applied research that was done among 168 personnel of selected teaching hospitals in Ahwaz city (Golestan and Taleghani). Data was collected by using the modified tool questionnaire of health organization (OHI) and Gee and Ford questionnaire for organizational commitment which their validity and reliability were measured before. Finally data was analyzed by Pearson correlation test.
The findings showed that among the listed dimensions of organizational health, the morale had the highest average (33/04) and the sources of support (15/83) had the lowest average. The average of organizational health was 152/62 from total points (220). Also between organizational health and some of its dimensions (principal influence, support resources, academic emphasis and morale) and organizational commitment was a significant and positive relationship (P<0/05) but other aspects (horalick, consideration and initiating structure) had no significant relationship (P>0/05). Moreover, the highest correlation was between organizational commitment and academic emphasis (r=0/356) and the least significant correlation was between consideration and organizational commitment (r=0/015).
Organizational health of hospital staff has significant correlation with the organizational commitment which makes them feel more loyal to their organization and take steps towards achieving organizational goals.
