Satisfaction is believed to be fundamental to individual and organizational performance. To this end, in recent time, especially in a developing country like Nigeria, there has been increasing concern over the adverse implications of the failure to adequately satisfy all levels of employees in any work organization. It is on this context that this study looked at the employees job satisfaction and performance and its effect on health care provision, with reference to Abia State University Teaching Hospital Aba, Nigeria.
