The purpose of this research is to explore the operational performance of the Ministry of Health’s general public hospitals following the implementation of the Health Transformation Program in Turkey. This study adopts the Malmquist index to analyze the operational performance of the 352 Ministry of Health’s general hospitals during the period 2005–2008. The result show that the operational performance of these hospitals regardless of the attributes present a common tendency that the performance of 2005–2007 progressed as compared to the previous year, while that of 2008 has regressed as compared to 2007.
