  •  Rula Al-Damen    


This study aimed to measure the impact of perceived health care service quality on patient satisfaction at a major government hospital in Jordan. For this purpose, the study developed an instrument based on modified ‘SERVQUAL’ using five service quality dimensions, namely: empathy, tangible, reliability, responsiveness and assurance. A survey was conducted to collect data with a total of 448 outpatient participants. Statistical techniques such as descriptive and inferential statistical techniques were employed to test the hypotheses. Results show that there is an impact of perceived health care service quality on overall patient satisfaction. Reliability had the most influence, followed by empathy and assurance. The study provided a set of recommendations.
