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

Today marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. A day that provides an opportunity for positive action and results that will directly affect our environment, ourselves and generations to come.
I can confidently say that UHN is doing its part to help protect the environment.
We currently have over 250 staff volunteer green team members and over 20 departmental green teams working together to find solutions for the complex greening issues unique to our organization. Please join me in thanking and congratulating all members of the UHN green teams for their hard work and dedication to this worthy cause.
It is not only UHN staff that recognize our outstanding commitment to patient and planet-centered care, as UHN was just recognized for our environmental leadership with awards from the Canadian College of Health Service Executives, Smart Commute Toronto and Practice GreenHealth.
Furthermore, environmental initiatives can be seen all over UHN such as the addition of composting at all three sites, the development of specialized programs to reduce biomedical and pharmaceutical waste, and our implementation of TLC - Care to Conserve energy management program which has resulted in cost savings of $175, 000 in just three years.
There is always more work to be done to be more planet-centered so my question to you is: What are you doing for Earth Day?
Will you be walking or biking to work? If so, check out the Cycling Hall today from 9-10:30 in the Oasis Wellness Centre.
