BACKGROUND: Organizational health (OH) is an organizational aspect in which staff is encouraged to be clearly involved and participate in decision-making, problem solving, and collaborating to improve organizational climate and culture. Multilevel staff involvement facilitates strengthened relationships, open communication, trust, and organizational commitment. The purpose of this study was to find components of OH for small-sized health-care organizations. METHODS: A systematic review across three key databases by using an extensive list of keywords components and interventions was conducted. This survey included studies that explored various OH elements, components and interventions. RESULTS: It comprises 34 full-text studies from 221 received studies. Afterward, the OH elements were classified into three main categories (OH elements, organizational health literacy, and organizational health interventions). Then, according to the reviewed data, 23 dimensions were defined similarly for all groups of studies and relevant explanations related to them were reported. CONCLUSION: The OH encompasses multiple dimensions. Empirical research is required for designing a questionnaire according to the final extracted components and measuring its validation in small-sized health organizations.
