Introduction: High quality health care service leads us towards a healthy society. Present paper aimed to use the service quality concept in health care sector based on service quality approach (SERVQUAL) in public hospitals. Methods: In present research a hybrid approach based on Analytic Network Process (ANP) and Fuzzy TOPSIS was used where the former was used for prioritization of healthcare service quality measures and the latter was used to operationalize the hospitals. Questionnaires and ANP and Fuzzy TOPSIS were used for data collection and analysis. Five public hospitals in Rash were evaluated. The time period of the study including data collection was 2014-2015. Results: The service quality criteria comprised of 6 main criteria and 19 sub-criteria in present study. Among five hospitals studied in present research, Rasoul Akram hospital obtained the first rank and other hospitals obtained the other ranks.
