Toronto Western Hospital is located in the vibrant heart of the downtown communities of South Annex, College, Queen and King Street West. It is a 272-bed academic health science centre dedicated to delivering exceptional patient care, providing a breadth of services from emergency care to sophisticated brain surgery.
As a world leader in neuroscience, TWH is constantly pushing the boundaries of research, offering pioneering treatments and using state-of-the-art technology. The hospital also has a strong community focus, providing innovative programs for and information to children, seniors, diabetes patients and many multicultural groups. With expertise in musculoskeletal health and arthritis, the hospital's programs also include orthopaedics, rheumatology and the hand program as well as a busy Emergency Department that sees more than 60,000 patients yearly.
TWH is currently undergoing a major redevelopment project – building the
Krembil Discovery Tower, a nine-story, state-of-the-art research tower slated for completion in 2013. It will house world-leading research into stroke, brain tumours, Parkinson’s disease and arthritis, among other disorders, and be home to Altum Health, a UHN-affiliated health- and disability-management services group.
Three UHN programs are centred at TWH:
Krembil Neuroscience, the
Arthritis Program and
Medical and Community Care. A theme that binds TWH programs and services is a focus on giving back vision, movement and independence to patients with disabling diseases and conditions associated with aging. Patients come to TWH for our expertise in Parkinson’s disease, stroke, arthritis, vision loss and autoimmune disease. They come for our unique ability to provide technologically advanced investigations and treatments in interventional neuroradiology, image-guided brain and spine surgery, delicate hand reconstruction, precise retinal repair, complex arthroplasty and elegant placement of electrical devices in the nervous system to improve patients’ function.
TWH has many outpatient clinics. For a complete list of clinics and their locations, please visit
