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.
UHN is committed to providing a healthy, safe and comfortable environment for all of our employees, patients and visitors. We continually review our policies and practices and make changes when necessary.
Many of our staff and patients have raised concerns about scented products and health symptoms. Employees, patients and visitors have told us that they experience headaches, dizziness, nausea and other symptoms when they are exposed to scented products. Scented personal care products include perfumes, deodorants, hair products and lotions.
As a result, UHN is now a scent-free organization, effective today, October 3, 2011. This policy applies to all our sites.
A formal scent-free policy has been created and can be found in the policies section of the Intranet in the Occupational Health & Safety section (http://documents.uhn.ca/sites/uhn/Policies/Administrative/General_Administration/1.20.016). This policy applies to all areas of UHN including those with and without patients. Occupational Health & Safety has created an FAQ document, which will help guide staff and managers on how to approach fellow colleagues or patient and visitors who may be wearing scented products.
We will also be communicating this new policy throughout the organization, to ensure people entering UHN are made aware. You will notice posters in public areas of the hospital to that effect. Please take the time to look around your area, and if your area needs additional posters, please contact Occ Health. Occ Health will also be distributing tent cards, which you can set out in your reception area to inform incoming patients and visitors. Finally, you may also consider adding a short message to that effect to your clinic voicemail, to help make patients aware before they enter the building.
If you have any questions or concerns after reading the policy and Frequently Asked Questions, please contact Occupational Health & Safety. Creating a healthy and comfortable work environment is something we must all take responsibility for. My thanks to all of you for working together to create a scent-free environment at UHN.
