This study aims first to identify the most critical factors related to hospital service performance in predicting the patient's satisfaction. Second, to examine the effect of patient satisfaction on patient loyalty. This research is a quantitative study with a cross-sectional approach, involving 280 outpatients conducted in two hospitals. Finally, the partial least square-structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) approach was performed to analyze the data. The result showed the lowest index performance is the outcome quality (49.84), and the highest is the quality of personnel (72.49). The calculation of the patient satisfaction index (PSI) is 67.48. Patient satisfaction is significantly influenced by the quality of personnel, outcome quality, social responsibility, administrative procedure, and physical aspect.
