Abstract: The rate of efficiency could be a measure to evaluate performance and profitability of resources usage in hospitals, considering their importance as the biggest and most expensive medical and health system, operative unit. Present research aims to evaluate Kermanshah City’s educational and academics hospitals efficiency. Present research is descriptive-analytical and was executed in cross sectional manner among 7 educational universities of Kermanshah City during 2013 and data was gathered by Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and are analysed by means of Deap2 Software. Considering research’s findings, the median of technical, managerial and scale efficiency of educational-medical hospitals of Kermanshah Medical University was equal to 0.876, 0.969 and 0.901 during 2013, respectively. Among all studied hospitals, 1 hospital (14.28% of all hospitals) had an increase in their efficiency and 2 hospitals (28.57% of all hospitals) had a decrease in their efficiency and 4 hospitals (57.14% of all hospitals) had a constant efficiency equal to number one. What’s more, 57.14% of hospitals had a constant efficiency in comparison to the scale, 28.57% of hospitals had a decreasing efficiency in comparison to the scale and 14.58% of hospitals had an increasing efficiency in comparison to the scale. Considering that active bed is an important factor at decreasing and increasing hospitals’ technical efficiency, eliminating surplus human resources, proper energy management to decrease hospital’s surplus expenses with a complete plane and based on DEA Method’s findings are suggested to increase hospitals’ efficiency.
