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.

An ECG records the electrical impulses moving through the heart muscle. The test won't cause you any pain, but you'll need to lie quietly for about 3 minutes. Wires will be attached to your chest, arms and legs. Electrical currents from your heart will go through the ECG machine and be recorded on special graph paper.
The ECG is used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats and can show an abnormal heartbeat, the presence of any damage or enlargement of the heart muscle. It can also show if your heart isn't getting enough oxygen and the effects of drugs or regulating devices.
