Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore the psychometric properties of the freshly developed questionnaire on Hospital Accreditation. The items were outlined with the support of the previously existing scales and interface with the sampling unit. The questionnaire consisted of sixteen items and this questionnaire was distributed to the participants to take their responses. The sample consisted 110 healthcare professionals of Delhi-NCR hospitals. The results of reliability analysis of scale show that Cronbach’s alpha value is 0.956. The reliability statistics match the optimal level of Nunnally’s criteria and statistically acceptable for freshly developed scale. The exploratory factor analysis show that these sixteen items are loaded on two factors (benefits of the organization and benefits of healthcare professionals) and these two factors explain 70.813% total variance in hospital accreditation. The items of this questionnaire are outlined in such way that this questionnaire can be also valuable tool for assessment of benefits by organization and healthcare professionals from Hospital accreditation.
