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.

Ways You Can Help
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one of our experts for an interview. It’s also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases, podcasts and more.
When you arrive at the Vascular Lab, check in at the reception desk. The ultrasound technologist (also called a sonographer) will come to get you from the waiting room when it's time for your scan. Then you'll be asked to change into a hospital gown.
You'll be asked to lie down and a clear water-based gel will be applied to the part of your body being scanned. The technologist or radiologist will then firmly rub an ultrasound probe back and forth over the area until all the pictures are taken.
The scan usually takes an hour – it will depend on how many scans we'll need to take. But we do our best to stay on time. Unfortunately, your appointment may be delayed by unforeseen circumstances. We recommend that you come prepared for delays.
The images will be reviewed by a vascular surgeon, who will write up a report. You'll be able to get the results from your doctor. Please understand that the technologist can't give you the results when your scan is finished.
