This academic research aims to examine the different factors that enhance employee engagement in the Lebanese private healthcare sector. Based on collected data from the healthcare sector in Lebanon, the linear regression test is employed to explore the correlation between employee engagement and four independent variables: corporate governance, transformational leadership, accountability, and hospital values. Three main organisational dimensions are proposed to enhance employee engagement in the Lebanese healthcare sector hospitals: transformational leadership, corporate governance practices and accountability culture. The results of the study do not reveal any significant correlation between hospital values and employee engagement. This research and its proposed model could be used in the healthcare sector to enhance the engagement of employees.
