The results of this research indicated that the respondents mostly were those with 6-10years of working experience; singles; those graduated with a bachelor’s degree; and those worked at Bhumibol Adulyadej Hospital.

Comparing between two hospitals, there were statistically significant differences in three areas. In terms of PLS – SEM, the Goodness of Fit was 0.44, implying high level. The Coefficient of Determination (R2) had the mean score of 0.3451. Average Variance Extracted was higher than the criteria at 0.50. Composite Reliability (CR) was very high, ranging from 0.828-0.873. Moreover, based on the above PLS – SEM, it was found that quality of work life directly influenced service quality with the path coefficient of 0.3510.
