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.
Vision: Saving lives together, caring intensively.
Mission: We are a dynamic, integrated inter-professional team providing exemplary, safe patient care in a culture of discovery, innovation, and knowledge translation.
COGWELL: COGnitive outcomes and
WELLness in survivors of critical illness
COGWELL will be the first multisite, comprehensive study to link sleep and circadian function, rhythmic cortical electrophysiological activity measured by quantitative EEG, and long-term cognitive impairment in survivors of critical illness.
Clinical effects of
You may be invited to participate in this study if the doctors caring for you have decided that they need to drain fluid out of the lungs, called a "pleural effusion". The decision to drain this fluid is often made with the intent of helping patients to breathe more easily and come off the ventilator sooner.
PROSPECT Pilot Trial:
PRObioticts to prevent
Infections are common in critically ill patients and new prevention strategies are needed. Probiotics are commercially available live microorganisms thought to have health benefits when ingested. Before probiotics can be recommended for use in critically ill patients for the prevention of infection, a large well done study is needed.
EUPHRATES: a Clinical Trial in Adults with Septic Shock and Endotoxemia
Currently an assay exists to determine endotoxin levels in blood but there is not an FDA- approved method of removing said endotoxin. The
EUPHRATES study is interested in determining the potential benefit in removing these endotoxins regarding the treatment of sepsis and patient outcomes.
RECOVER: REhabilitation and ReCOVERy in survivors of Critical Illness. Long-Term Outcomes and Needs Assessment in ICU Survivors of Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation and their Caregivers
We aim to learn more about the walking ability, quality of life, and lung recovery in patients at two-years after leaving the ICU. These patients must have been on a mechanical ventilator for one week or longer.
Assist. Innovative Approaches to Mechanical Ventilation in Spinal Cord Injured Patients
The pilot study aims to improve our understanding of the interaction between patients with spinal cord injuries and breathing machines, which will help determine what type of mechanical ventilation is better for patients with spinal cord injuries.
