Abstract: Health workers account for the largest share of public health expenditure and play an important role in improving the quality of health services. There are concerns that poor performance by health workers will limit the effectiveness of health system strengthening. A cross-sectional study was conducted at Addis Ababa health center from September to October 2016. Data were collected from 420 medical and nursing personnel, and trained data collectors used pre-test and structured questionnaire. Epi Info 7 is used for data input and analyzed by SPSS version 20. Bivariate and multivariate logistic analyses were used to identify factors associated with outcome variables and to control for confounding factors. Values less than 0.05 were considered statistically significant. Overall job satisfactionion level accounts for 53.8 with 95 CI of (48.9 , 59.0 ). Marital status and professional qualification were the potent predictors of job satisfaction. Respondents who never married were 1.65 times more likely to be satisfied in their job than those married or divorced (AOR: 1.65 (95 CI: 1.02, 2.66)). Laboratory professionals and nursing professionals were 2.74 and 1.97 times more likely to be satisfied in their job compared to health officers (AOR: 2.47 (95 CI: 1.14, 6.59) and AOR: 1.97 (95 CI: 1.12, 3.48), respectively). More than half of the healthcare workers in the study area were satisfied in their job. Marital status and healthcare workers’ profession type were predictors of job satisfaction. Research studies indicate that there is a positive relationship between performance and job satisfaction. Accordingly, the present study aimed at determining the level of job satisfaction of health workers and its associated factors in the health centers of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
