Abstract : The purpose of this study was to assess the organizational climate at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) through the use of a Work Environment Scale (WES) that was developed by Rudolph Moos. The WES is designed to measure that actual, preferred, and expected social environments of work settings. Although many studies have been conducted on patient satisfaction, fewer have been done on the health care employees. The administration of the WES to LRMC civilian and military employees did not reveal any significant differences in comparison with Moos' normative data for health care workers. An additional set of questions were specifically developed for the LRMC work environment. These questions included demographic items to assist in the identification of possible between group response differences. Within the LRMC response group selected difference were found with regard to younger and older workers. Differences between male and female respondents were found to be overall statistically not significant, with the exception of task orientation (females were more task oriented). No statistical significance was found between respondents' satisfaction levels as differentiated by Deputy Commander category.
