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.
Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is the use of technology to provide health care and education for patients when a clinician and a patient are not located near each other.
At UHN, we use video-conferencing to connect patients across Ontario with clinicians at each of our hospitals (Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Rehab and Toronto Western Hospital). Our Telehealth program was established in 2002. More than 3,200 patients each year meet with our clinicians through telehealth appointments.
We offer telehealth services through a safe and secure connection provided by the
Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN).
Telehealth offers many benefits:
Save on travel: Instead of travelling to one of our hospitals, you can meet with a clinician at UHN by visiting a telehealth site in your own community or a location that is closer to home.
There are more than 1,400 telehealth sites across Ontario, and these are often in hospitals, community health centres, family health team offices, and other community agencies. You can find the telehealth location that’s closest to you by calling our telehealth partner, OTN, at 1 866 454 6861.
A telehealth appointment saves you the time and costs that come with travelling long distances.
Get greater access to specialists: Along with your local clinicians, you can meet with a UHN specialist as part of your health care team, all within your own community.
See your family: If you are staying at a UHN hospital, you can use telehealth services to arrange a video-conference visit with your family members who live throughout the province.
Help the environment: Telehealth is also good for the environment. Cutting down on travel reduces greenhouse gas emissions from cars. For example, in 2010, by using telehealth appointments, we eliminated more than 750,000 km of travel and prevented more than 185,000 kg of greenhouse gas emissions.
