Abstract: Abstract This study seeks to create an integrated multitheoretical model of public healthcare services delivery organizations. A literature review of selected organization theories and their relevance to healthcare was conducted. By illuminating the aspects of control over resources, isomorphism, adaptation to the changing environment and contracts between parties based on the key elements of the resource-dependence theory, institutional theory, population ecology and transaction-cost economics theory, an integrated multitheoretical model of a public healthcare services delivery organization has been presented. There is a need for empirically testing the model proposed by this study.
