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.

Point of care testing (POCT) is a medical diagnostic test performed outside of the clinical lab, at or near a patient. These tests allow medical staff to achieve real-time diagnostic results within minutes, enabling staff to make rapid triage and treatment decisions.
UHN has one of the largest hospital point-of-care programs in Canada.
LMP currently oversees nine point-of-care programs within the UHN environment:
The POCT Team also provides ongoing medical oversight and consultation in best-practice standards in POCT for a number of external facilities and other institutions.
UHN POCT testing programs meet accreditation requirements as outlined by Accreditation Canada – Diagnostics and Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care laboratory licensing requirements.
The POCT Team at UHN provides best practice guidance, quality assurance support that includes quality control review, operator training and facilitation of proficiency testing for all POCT programs at UHN.
These POCT programs are practiced across various clinical areas of UHN. A UHN multidisciplinary committee meets regularly to ensure all POCT programs implemented meet the necessary hospital and laboratory accreditation and safety requirements.
