Time and work cultures have changed from men being the sole bread-earner to the world where both men and women equally share the responsibility of family-life and society. Women have shown their presence in every thought. On the one hand, working in hospitals as an employee proves out to be a life sustaining income for women, but on the other hand, it also exerts its own pressures on them. The success of the employees depends on the performance at workplace and at their family for which management of work-life balance is an important issue for the woman employees. Employees’ work-life imbalances are one of the major reasons that affect their intention to stay in their present organization. Therefore, the present study conducted to analyze the factors that affecting the work-life imbalance and their impact on turnover intention of the woman employees working in private hospitals in Chennai district, Tamil Nadu, India. The study is conducted with a sample size of 120 Woman employees (doctors, nurses, administrative workers, etc.) and analysis is done both descriptively and inferentially. The statistical tools like Independent Sample ‘t’ test, Correlation and Multiple Regression are applied for testing of hypotheses. Based on the analysis, the study revealed that out of four factors, Workload has most significant impact on Work-life imbalance and turnover intention of woman employees in the private sector hospitals.  The study also found that there is strong correlation between the various factors that affecting work-life imbalance and the turnover intention. Married woman employees have more perception on the various factors that influencing work-life imbalance and turnover intention than the unmarried woman employees.  The study suggests the hospital management should consider the importance of maintaining the work-life balance practices and reducing the turnover intention of the woman employees and implement good human resource practices for the same. This would not only reduce the work-life imbalances but also the reduce the turnover intention of woman employees as the organizational performance is purely depends on the employees’ performance.
