The relationships between contextual influences and transformational leadership in two multiple nonprofit hospital systems found in northwest Virginia were explored and explained in this quantitative study. Data collected from administering two instruments, the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) and a Likert-type context survey were assessed by descriptive statistics, correlation analyses, and multiple regression methods. The results from several different analyses provided the following phenomena concerning the relationship between contextual influences and transformational leadership at two multiple nonprofit hospital systems: (a) empowerment and ethics had the most significant correlation and the strongest relationship with transformational leadership and (b) no leader in this sample scored transformational according to the criteria set by Avolio and Bass (2004).
