Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics methods and Spearman, Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis tests. Results: The condition of internal environment of the studied hospitals was evaluated as weak in terms of communication, neutral for structure, and strong for purposing, rewards, leadership, coordination, and attitude for change.
