The purpose of this study was to determine the level of efficiency of social care organization hospitals and to compare their efficiency with regard to the environmental variables of the hospital and the characteristics of the managers (type of activity, field of activity, level of education, age, gender, field of study). In this research, all social care hospitals in the country have been studied (70 hospitals). In the definition of variables, the number of active beds, the number of physicians, the number of general practitioners, the number of paramedical staff, the number of other doctors, the number of nurses, the number of volunteers and the number of other personnel as output variables and the number of admissions, admissions, Occupied bed, average patient accommodation and bed occupancy rate are identified as input variables. In order to measure the performance of hospitals, the DEA model was used to identify the inefficient hospitals, using Anderson-Peterson model hospitals.The results show that the average efficiency of social care hospitals in 2013 is 0.99, in which 58 hospitals (83%) and 12 inefficient hospitals (17%).In addition, in this study, the amount of inputs and outputs was determined for inefficient hospitals to reach the border.Therefore, the hospitals will optimize the number of their surpluses, even lower the initial inputs to achieve optimal performance. Other results also indicated that the environmental variables of the hospital and the characteristics of the managers (type of activity, field of activity, level of education, age, gender, field of study) did not affect performance.
