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.

Currently 25 – 30% of the lung transplant patients have cystic fibrosis.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited or genetic disease that causes an overproduction of thick mucous in many organs of the body, but most commonly affects the lungs. As a result, patients with CF can have a chronic cough, phlegm production, shortness of breath, chest tightness, sinus problems and occasionally cough up blood. As the disease progresses the lungs will lose their functional capacity to a level where the patient is unable to live without a lung transplant.
