Leadership Message

We are pleased to present the 2023 Annual Report for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre at the University Health Network (UHN).

This year has been filled with many moments, big and small, that underscore the importance of: “Why Cancer,” “Why UHN,” and why we show up with purpose every day for our patients, caregivers and families, and for one another.

We were excited to launch our Always Moving Forward strategic plan for 2023 and beyond. Developed in collaboration with patients, staff, TeamUHN, and healthcare partners, the plan is centered around three core themes: Elevate, Explore, and Inspire. Moving forward, we are renewing focus on an exceptional patient experience by ensuring patients, healthcare providers, and committed partners are confident in the care delivered and feel valued, engaged, and represented. We will accelerate research discoveries beyond the cutting edge, create novel pathways to cure, and rapidly advance safer and more effective therapeutics. By focusing on the highest-impact solutions, we will usher in a new era of progress in cancer care worldwide.

We took pride in recognizing innovation across many areas including: the arrival of new surgical robots; expanding availability of genetic testing; the launch of a UHN centre in artificial intelligence; exciting clinical trials in supportive care; planning for future particle therapy and expanded space for cellular therapies. more effective therapeutics. By focusing on the highest-impact solutions, we will usher in a new era of progress in cancer care worldwide.

  • We launched the Oncology Nursing Research Centre of Excellence.
  • Our Quality and Cancer Digital Intelligence teams began sharing real-time patient experience data with clinical site groups.
  • We opened the CCRU Convergence Centre, a dedicated clinical research facility that is the first of its kind at UHN.
  • We opened the new Wharton Centre for Head and Neck Cancer, refreshed spaces for GI and GU cancers, and continued renovations to the Princess Margaret Lodge on Jarvis Street.

Finally, we celebrate and appreciate the brilliant team at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation without whom many of these innovations, capital builds, and world-leading research would not take place.
