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.

We are pleased to present the 2021 Annual Report for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre at the University Health Network (UHN). The second year of the COVID-19 pandemic continued to present challenges, with successive waves of infection and new COVID variants, resulting in the need to continually adapt how we deliver healthcare, conduct research and communicate.
Despite the challenges, our teams continued to find meaning in their work, and offer comfort and confidence to their colleagues and patients, with many redeploying to the front lines when required. New staff came on board, and unfortunately, we lost some cherished colleagues along the way.
The Princess Margaret not only kept going with an uninterrupted slate of cancer treatments, counselling and care, an interdisciplinary team mobilized in March to begin providing COVID-19 vaccinations to cancer patients. 2021 also saw significant progress in the areas of governance, expansion and integration, and advancing our strategic pillars.
Among the Highlights
Some of Our Major Research Achievements Include:
Our researchers and educators continued to deliver excellence, publishing more than 1,000 papers in the world’s top journals, educating clinicians from around the globe and innovating to launch and advance highly successful companies.
We would like to acknowledge the key role The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation plays through its philanthropic efforts that help make our programs, research and bold innovation agenda possible. We thank our donors, granting agencies, sponsors, and supporters for their continued patronage.
And finally, our immense gratitude to our staff, volunteers, and learners, many from across the globe, who have persevered through two extremely challenging years, with determination, compassion and courage. Your unflagging optimism and dedication make a significant difference to patients, their families, and our colleagues.
