Abstract: 
Introduction: The philosophical dimensions of lean management in health section, and especially in hospitals which could renew their function and contribute to their development in providing improved services are of particular importance. The present study aims to investigate the effect of waste control, lean techniques and visual systems on lean management in hospitals of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences (SBMU). Methods: Considering the results, the present case study falls in the applied category. The research populations were managers at different levels of senior, middle, and operational in the SBMU teaching hospitals. The data were obtained through researcher-made questionnaire that its validity confirmed by a group of elite scientific and executive experts in the field of lean management and its reliability calculated 82 percent using Cronbach's alpha. Results: The obtained findings revealed that all the three factors of waste control, lean techniques, and visual systems significantly loaded on the lean management. The results of the conducted factor analysis on the basis of goodness of fit indices NFI=95%, GFI=92%, and RMSEA=0. 052% verified fitness of the model. Conclusion: Considering the effect of waste control, lean techniques, and visual systems on lean management in the teaching hospitals, examining hospital infrastructures and the use of self-assessment system for feasibility of lean execution could be effective in establishment of lean management in hospitals.
