Abstract Background: Hospital managers' decision-making styles indicate the usual pattern managers use to make their decisions. This paper is aimed to determine the variety of managers' decision-making styles` in public and private hospitals in Shiraz. Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 106 administrative, financial, internal and nursing managers were selected from 28 public and private hospitals through census sampling technique to participate in this study. The data were collected by a 22-item questionnaire (α = 0.86) and analyzed using T-Test and ANOVA in significance level of 0.05. Results: Studied managers used rational decision-making style more often than avoidance of decision-making style. Older and official managers and private hospital managers used the intuitive decision-making style more often.Managers who had not attended management training courses used the intuitive and dependent decision-making styles more often. Managers who were teaching in the fields of nursing and midwifery used rational decision-making patterns more often. Conclusion: It seems necessary to provide sufficient ground for scientific and evidence-based decision making for all hospital managers. Therefore identifying present obstacles and providing an environment in which managers could improve their decision-making skills is recommended.
