The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of hospitals in Iran using Pabon Lasso model. In this descriptive study, both Persian and English papers about performance, function and Pabon Lasso model were searched in Iranian databases: Scientific Information Database Information Bank Country (Magiran), Banks Articles of Medical Sciences (Iranmedex), Science Direct, ISCCSI, PubMed, ProQuest, and Google Scholar. The study population was comprised 386 hospitals and 24 articles that 18 articles were valid and used in research. A total of 386 hospitals, of which 98 hospitals (25.4%) had a poor performance in the first zone, 79 hospitals (20.4%) had moderate performance in the second zone, 123 hospitals (32.1%) had a great performance in the third zone, and 86 hospitals (22.1%) were relatively modest performance in the fourth zone. Given that the most of the hospitals have above average performance, it is necessary to perform detailed plans for the optimal use of human and material resources in hospitals.
