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.
Typically within a week, you are seen at the
Thoracic Surgery Clinic at TGH or the
Lung Clinic at Princess Margaret Hospital clinic where a thoracic surgeon or an interventional pulmonologist will conduct an examination, review available CT scan imaging and, in consultation with you, will determine steps necessary to establish the diagnosis.
In some instances, tests will be scheduled before the initial clinic consultations, based on the provided referral information.
Our secretary will call you with a test schedule and our nurse navigator will be available to answer your questions.
Here's what you need to know before your consult:
The first person you meet is the receptionist. To sign in with the receptionist, you will need your health card (OHIP card). Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment.
You will be given a form to fill out. This form contains questions about your background. We collect this information to find out who we serve and what unique needs you may have.
The form is voluntary and you can choose 'prefer not to answer' to any or all questions. However, the information you chose to give us will help us improve the quality of care for you and others.
First appointments take longer than follow-up appointments. Your first appointment can take 2 hours or more.
Follow-up appointments usually take 15 to 30 minutes.
We do everything that we can to stay on time. Unfortunately, your appointment may be delayed by unforeseen circumstances. We recommend that you come prepared for delays.
At the end of your first appointment, the nurse or doctor will give you a contact list for your health care team. If you don't get a contact list, feel free to ask for it.
At your first appointment, you will be asked if you would like us to communicate with you by email. If you do, we will ask you to fill out a consent form. This form outlines the risks of email communication and how it can be used safely. Many patients find email a convenient way to communicate with the team. Email should not be used in emergencies.
After every appointment, a member of your health care team will tell you about your next visit. Be sure you understand what is going to happen next. For example, know the time and place of your next visit or if someone will call you with this information.
If you are unsure about what your next steps are, don't be afraid to ask a member of your team. We are here to help you.
We understand that reaching us by phone can sometimes be difficult. Often our phone lines are busy or are turned over to the message centre so our staff can prepare for clinic visits or help other patients.
We make every effort to return your call within 24 hours. Our staff will try to reach you 2 times. If we are not able to reach you directly – and you do not have an answering machine for us to leave a message – you may need to call us again.
