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.
Dear Colleagues, As we get closer to the province's budget day, we are also closer to receiving news from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care about our funding for next year and what the new funding formula (HBAM) will mean for UHN. In addition to this change in funding formula which could decrease our global budget, we have the pressure of inflation which may or may not be partially addressed by the Ministry. As I've said before, the provincial economic outlook and the government's need to control spending are going to affect all of us and we are going to have to pull together to work through our budget challenges.
I want to start by saying that we will do everything within our power to avoid involuntary layoffs. You are, individually and collectively, the most valuable resource we have and we work hard to move people within the organization when vacancies occur because people retire or leave UHN for other opportunities. Therefore, we will continue our hiring freeze and recruiting people from outside UHN will require my signature or the signature of one of our UHN Exec members before a process can go forward. I know that this is difficult, but it is necessary if we want to hold to our goal of avoiding involuntary layoffs.
Some of you have asked "What can I do to help?" or "I have ideas that could save UHN money so who do I talk to about those ideas?" All ideas are welcome and you should bring them forward through your manager.
In answering the first question I'll offer two facts which are staggering – at least to me. Last year UHN spent approximately $16.5 million to replace individuals who had called in sick and approximately $10 million on overtime. We all need to work together to reduce these costs and the effort will involve each of you, managers, Human Resource staff, union leadership, and your colleagues. When we reduce this cost, we greatly improve our ability to avoid involuntary layoffs in the years ahead.
