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.

A 2D (Transthoracic) Echocardiogram is a test that uses ultrasound to take a picture of the heart. A probe is placed on the chest or in the esophagus, and high frequency sound waves – higher than the human ear can pick up – are sent into the body towards the heart. As the sound goes through the different areas of the body, part of it bounces back to the probe and is interpreted by the ultrasound machine into images of the heart and its blood flow
