The aim of this research is to study the maintenance performance indicators in order to control the operation of hospital building maintenance in the Gaza Strip. Several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were developed for hospital buildings, ten KPI’s for hospital facilities presented, but four KPIs were used in this study to be suitable to the Gaza Strip hospitals. Another objective of this research is to study the operational conditions and factors that carried out and affect the maintenance management and deriving a suitable framework for the minimum requirements. All the 13 governmental hospitals which are administrated by Ministry of Health was the targeted population of this research.
