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.
What to expect if you have been scheduled for a telephone or video visit with your care team at UHN.
During a virtual visit you do not come to the hospital to meet in person. You speak with your care team using a regular telephone, smartphone or your computer.
We are using virtual visits more often at UHN to reduce how many people come to the hospital. This is to protect our patients, staff and the community from the spread of COVID-19. Virtual visits are not new. UHN and health care teams across Ontario have been using virtual visits for some time through the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN).
Your health care team talks to you about your current health status, any symptoms you are experiencing and your needs. If your care team feels that an in-person visit is needed instead of a virtual visit, they will discuss your options and next steps with you.
Your care team may call you to discuss changing your upcoming appointment to a virtual visit.
The decision on which type of virtual visit you have will be made based on your care needs and the technology you and the clinic have access to.
If you use myUHN Patient Portal:
myUHN Patient Portal lets you see changes to your appointments and access your results and reports online. If you don’t use myUHN Patient Portal and would like to, contact the myUHN Support team by:Phone: 416 340 3777 orEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org
UHN uses a secure video conferencing tool provided by Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) for video calls. OTN is funded and fully supported by the Government of Ontario to enable people to receive care at home.
What to expect using OTN
Is OTN safe and private?
Please call your care provider’s office if you have any questions regarding your OTN appointment or if you do not receive this email from OTN.
Electronic communication, including virtual visits and email, may have some risk. Third parties may take over electronic communication and introduce malware, phishing scams, or other unauthorized access.
UHN is not responsible for the security of patients’ internet service providers, email domains, personal devices or personal computers.
We suggest that you use your personal email when communicating about your health and not a work email address, as your employer may have the right to inspect your work email.
Use a secure internet connection. Do not use a public internet connection such as at the airport internet café, public library or other open area. Other people may be able to use the link to listen in on your appointment without you knowing.
For more information on how to protect yourself against security risks associated with electronic communication, read this article on UHN.ca:
Don’t let a phishing attack reel you in.
Your privacy is very important to us at UHN. We protect your privacy during virtual visits in the same way as we do during a clinic visit.
We suggest that you take similar steps to protect your own privacy. This means being aware of your surroundings and who may be able to overhear your virtual visit.
You can decline or withdraw your consent for virtual visits or communication using email or text, at any time by contacting your care provider. Please know that this may lead to delays in your care during this challenging time, as only urgent in-person appointments are being offered in our clinics right now.
