    ABSTRACT: Teamwork in hospitals has been recognized as an important contributor in providing high-quality healthcare for patients. However, it is imperative to understand the factors that affect the relationships among medical patient teams and their perceptions of patient’s healthcare quality. The primary objective of this study is to detect the Total Quality Management (TQM) status and teamwork orientation in one of the main Healthcare organizations in Iraq named Al-Yarmouk Teaching Hospital. A questionnaire survey was specially designed as to achieve study objectives. The questionnaire is divided into (60) various items specifically developed to gather information about the study variables. This study was carried out using a cross-sectional survey in which (64) respondents from (Al-Yarmouk Teaching Hospital) had completed a newly developed survey with a response rate of 100%. Descriptive statistics, Pearson Correlation, and ANOVA were used for data analysis. The main result of this study was that there was a positive correlation between all TQM dimensions and Teamwork.

Moreover, the study result on one hand has shown that the impact of teamwork on staff Satisfaction value is 0.854, on the other hand it has proved the absence of impact between teamwork and staff perceptions on Quality of Patient Care.
