Objective: This research was carried out in the first half of the year 1999 to review the performance of Alzahra Hospital in Isfahan and to compare it with the existing standards.

Methods: A descriptive - comparative method was used in this research. Data was collected by observation, interview and a check list. The four utilization indexes, including bed occupancy rate, the average length of stay, and turnover were calculated and compared against the existing standards.

Findings: The percentage of bed occupancy in the study hospital was 55.5% coming close to the country's average rate of 58%. Nevertheless, this rating was quite far from the world's standard (85%). The average length of stay (5.5), complies with the world standard.

Conclusions: Raising bed occupancy rate, and what it involves calls for long term, and comprehensive planning. This up rating requires an increase in the inpatient admissions and what it entails, which consequently results in the increase in the bed performance rate.
