Abstract:
Background & Objectives: Social responsibility is one of the most important elements of the organizations' existential philosophy, especially organizations such as hospitals. This study was conducted to evaluate the perspectives of the managers and head nurses of public and private hospitals in Tabriz/ Iran about social responsibility.
Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was performed on 57 head nurses and managers working in public and private hospitals in Tabriz selected by census method in 2016.  Data collection tool was a four-part questionnaire including 24 questions for assessing the status of social responsibility in the hospital. Data analysis was performed through SPSS 21 software.
Results: From the perspectives of our subjects in public and private hospitals, patients were the most important group affecting organizations' activities (mean scores: 3.73 and 1.82 respectively), approaching to international standards was the most important motivator (mean scores: 3.23 and 3.70 respectively) and attention to suppliers was the most important focus area (mean scores: 3.76 and 3.51 respectively). 
Conclusion: According to the obtained results, most managers and head nurses, based on the type of hospital working in it, had a different conception of social responsibility. Therefore, it is suggested to provide the required trainings in relation to the necessity of establishing social responsibility in hospitals, regardless of the type of hospital.
