What We Do

The Francis Family Liver Clinic is an integrated clinic located at the Toronto General Hospital.  It resulted from an amalgamation of the Toronto Western Hospital Liver Clinic and the Toronto General Hospital Liver Unit in January 2016. We are the clinical component of the Toronto Centre for Liver Disease (TCLD), named in 2016 because it encompasses areas of research, education, training, and a world renowned liver transplantation in a single healthcare facility. The TCLD is one of the largest liver units in North America.
