The present study aims to identify the components of organizational-commercial health and their status in Fars University of Medical Sciences. This study is applied and developmental in terms of purpose, descriptive in terms of nature, and a field study in terms of the data collection method. The statistical population of the present study includes two groups: 1) Experts in the field of organizational health among whom 15 people were selected, and 2) All employees of Fars University of Medical Sciences (1780 people) among whom 315 were selected according to Cochran’s formula by proportional stratified random sampling method. The organizational health questionnaire based on the study literature consists of 10 main components and 29 sub-indicators, that using the Delphi technique, the number of main items was changed to 8 and sub-indicators to 26 items. The content validity of the organizational health questionnaire was estimated to be 0.91,5 and the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was higher than 0.7. The mean and one-sample t-test, using SPSS software, were used in order to analyze the data. According to the results, the components of organizational health based on the criteria proposed by experts include responsiveness to the environment, cohesion, effectiveness, leadership, professional ethics, performance appraisal, communication style, and organizational atmosphere. The mean of all components was between 4 and 5 (between “appropriate” and “perfectly appropriate”). So, according to the experts, there is a fit between all dimensions of organizational health based on the proposed criteria. Also, considering that the P-value of the test (0.000) was lower than the significance level of 0.05, so given the obtained mean higher than the base mean (3) for the variables, it can be said that the organizational-commercial health variable status is favorable.
