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.

I'm pleased to share some great news! Thanks to everyone's hard work and contributions, UHN has been awarded a full three-year "Accreditation" - the highest possible award by the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation (CCHSA).
The final report reflects a lot of what was covered at the debriefing session in December. A few noteworthy highlights:
Overall, the CCHSA surveyors were impressed with UHN's friendly, culture of openness and our commitment to patient-centred care. We were commended for our progress since the 2002 accreditation survey and for addressing the majority of their recommendations.
Eight UHN initiatives were recognized as "Good Practices." These initiatives are:
During the focus groups, patients, families and volunteers told the surveyors that they were pleased with the care and services they received at UHN. Patients feel welcomed here and treated with respect. They also noticed an improvement in staff communications.
Staff who took part in the focus groups commented that they considered UHN to be a very diverse organization with lots of opportunities to grow and to access educational opportunities. Staff also valued the open communication with leaders and managers.
The surveyors also noted that UHN collaborates with our community health partners on a number of fronts. This is an area that will grow in this new LHIN-era.
Of course, the report draws attention to some areas for further work with 14 recommendations, including the need for greater access to bioethical support for front-line staff and a review of our medication administration process. These recommendations are certainly valuable.
We have a lot to be proud of and this report certainly gives us another occasion to celebrate our accomplishments. UHN is truly "a caring, creative and accountable academic hospital, transforming health care for our patients, our community and the world."
