University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community

UHN spends over $70,000 a day on utilities, money I think we all agree we'd much rather spend on patient care. That's why we're launching "Operation TLC – Thermostats, Lights and Controls" and have set an energy saving goal of $2.35 million for 2013-14.
TLC – Thermostats, Lights and Controls is being led by the Senior VP at each of our hospitals:
We're working on making our buildings more efficient with projects ranging from installing LED lighting, to improving heating and cooling, but in order to reach our goal, we need everyone at UHN to participate.
It's simple – when not in use, turn-off lights, non-critical computers, monitors, printers, photocopiers, fans and other equipment and appliances.
Our Facilities departments are getting ready to adjust temperatures so that they are on the outer range of "normal", which means that we'll need to dress accordingly, with short sleeves, no ties and no jackets in the hotter months and warmer clothing in winter.
Although it's not their responsibility to turn off lights, we've also empowered our Housekeepers and Security Officers to do so in empty rooms should they find the lights left on, so don't be surprised if you return to your work area to find it dark – and please be respectful of the role we've asked your colleagues to play.
Energy & Environment will be providing regular updates, but if you want to play a more active goal in saving energy, and improving patient care, please contact Kady Cowan, UHN Energy Steward, at
