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 Echocardiogram uses sound waves (ultrasound) to record moving images and is useful for assessing the size of the heart chambers and walls, heart muscle function, heart valve function, blood clots or masses in the heart, fluid around the heart, presence of holes or defects between the heart chambers, and abnormalities of blood flow within the heart. It can play an important role in managing the medical care of cardiac patients and timing cardiac surgery.
The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre maintains a focus on treating individual patients with compassion and respect. Our team excels at working together to help patients and families at every stage of their care. We’re well known for our high patient satisfaction record, and we’re committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for our cardiac and vascular patients.
