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.

Ways You Can Help
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 of our experts for an interview. It’s also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases, podcasts and more.
A couple of days ago we received the news that UHN had been Accredited with Exemplary Standing, the highest award that an organization can received from Accreditation Canada in its new system. This decision reflects the extraordinary work that each of you do every day at UHN in caring for our patients and their families. I am honoured to lead UHN and thank all of you for your dedication to making this the best hospital in Canada.
Accreditation Canada explains its decisions as follows:
The accreditation decision an organization receives is based on its performance in three main areas and reflects the organization's degree of success in each area:
*Required Organizational Practices (ROPs) are evidence-based practices that mitigate risk and contribute to improving the safety of health services.
Accredited with Exemplary Standing reflects an organization that has attained a very high level of performance and quality in achieving the majority of required elements in the accreditation program.Accredited with Exemplary Standing means the organization has achieved the highest level of accreditation.
If you'd like to read the complete final report for UHN's accreditation, you may find it at http://intranet.uhn.ca/home/accreditation/ which also records the hard work that it took to get to our accreditation last fall.
I'll close by thanking Emily Musing, Anita Tepfers, Therese Hawn and Natalie Quan for all of their work in preparing the organization for accreditation. I know that they're probably already thinking about what happens next, but I think we should all pause and celebrate this accomplishment.
