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.

It's my pleasure to announce that Kevin Empey, Executive Vice President of Clinical Support and Corporate Services will be seconded to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to assist with hospital negotiations for the 2007/08 Hospital Accountability Agreements (HAA).
As many of you know, Kevin is highly respected in health care circles for his leadership and in-depth knowledge of hospital financing and corporate services, particularly his understanding in the intricacies of the ministry's HAA process. This is a complicated, annual process between individual hospitals and the ministry where performance obligations and funding uses are outlined, among other things. Next fiscal year is especially important as the ministry transitions hospital funding responsibilities to the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINS).
Kevin's secondment takes effect on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 for approximately three months. He will continue to work on a number of strategic initiatives for UHN. In the interim, Justine Jackson, Nan Brooks, Dr. Michael Gardam, Dr Sylvia Asa and Brad Davis will report to me, and Michael Sheeres will report to Catherine Zahn. Attached is the organization chart for Clinical Support and Corporate Services.
Please join me in congratulating Kevin on this exciting opportunity!
