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
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

Just a few weeks ago we read about the staggering cost associated with future chronic illness, from a new study commissioned by the World Economic Forum. The estimate of $47-trillion (U.S.), is so large it's almost inconceivable. The study looked at cancer, diabetes, mental illness, heart disease and respiratory illness.
In our own small way, we want to make a difference to that statistic here at UHN, starting with our own attention to our personal health and wellness. UHN's commitment to everyone's wellness is reflected every day through our Wellness programming. This month is Healthy Workplace Month, and although wellness matters 365 days a year, it's still an opportunity to pause and reflect on living a healthy life: physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually and spiritually – at work and at home, to enable you to fully engage in all of your life roles.
Join the wellness team for a host of activities across all UHN/TRI sites this October as we celebrate Canada's healthy workplace month. The options are endless: sign-up for "Walktober" – an online walking challenge, drop-in for yoga or Tai Chi in the DeGasperis at TGH at lunchtime, or try out the Skinny Jeans Workout at the Bickle Centre. If those are not your activities, consider mixed martial arts or personal Nutrition Counseling with our own registered dietitian. For more information, visit Wellness on the Intranet.
Our Wellness team are always looking for new ways to inspire and encourage staff. They've recently started a new blog, Living Well @ UHN. I encourage all of you to take a look at it at www.livingwellatuhn.com.
