The present research was conducted to study the effect of combining hospital wards on current expenses of Bou Ali Medical & Teaching Center by the means of increasing the efficacy of hospital wards.

The information form which validity was approved by professionals was used for data collection. Data analyzed by Wilcoxon test and descriptive statistics indices.
Results: The average of ongoing expenditures in 2007 and 2008, before the combination of hospital wards was 31393.2 IRR and after the combination it was 1957558.6 IRR. There was significant relationship between the costs of manpower, consumed materials and supplies and the current and general costs of hospital in the two past periods before and after the combination (P<0.0001).
