Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

Ways You Can Help
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one of our experts for an interview. It’s also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases, podcasts and more.
The Clinical Biochemistry division provides high-volume routine diagnostic and specialized esoteric testing to health care providers at UHN and serves as a reference laboratory provincially and nationally.
We perform approximately 10 million tests per year and use technologies and outreach efforts to build capacity, provide training and offer support to other institutions. In addition, we provide testing to research contracting agencies and principal investigators worldwide.
Clinical biochemistry tests are performed at the UHN core laboratories (located at TGH, TWH and PMH), which are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation capable of performing thousands of tests per hour.
Clinical biochemistry staff are involved in leading-edge research in the areas of tumour markers, cardiac markers, endocrinology, transplantation, immunology and point-of-care testing. New laboratory-developed tests and platforms are routinely introduced to further both research and clinical trials. The Division supports and encourages training and continuing education.
