    Background: This study was conducted to compare the main performance indicators of Hasheminejad hospital before and after implementing PPP model.
   Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted in Iran in 2015. Performance indicators of Hasheminejad hospital, the only Iranian unit that implemented PPP model, were applied. Data were collected based on a researcher-designed checklist after ensuring its validity and reliability. Data were analyzed applying SPSS21, and the Shapiro-Wilk test was used to examine the relevant data normalization. After confirming the normality of the data, descriptive statistics and paired t test were used to analyze the data at a significant level of 0.05.
   Results: Dramatic variations were observed in the status of the studied indicators after the implementation of PPP in Hasheminejad hospital, and the changes were statistically significant in all these indicators (p<0.05).
   Conclusion: It seems that implementing PPP in Hasheminejad hospital can be considered as a successful experience in Iran’s health sector. The significant improvement in this hospital’s performance indicators can emphasize the effective role of PPP in administration of this hospital. However, service quality and patient satisfaction should be considered as qualitative indicators, along with the present quantitative indicators because better judgment about the changes was achieved in this hospital after implementing PPP.
