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.
As the leaves fall and a new season arrives we also welcome a new government to the Ontario legislature. Although there are some new faces in cabinet, many of the high-profile cabinet ministers are returning to their posts, including the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, George Smitherman.
These recent election results means that we will continue to work with people who are familiar with the files and we are familiar with their plans. The Ontario government's platform is titled "Moving Forward Together." UHN has been moving in the same direction as the government for the last four years and we're on track to move in the same direction for the next four years.
Two major areas of focus for both UHN and the government are reducing emergency department wait times; and enhancing community health care services to keep patients out of hospital - which the government is hoping to accomplish through the Aging at Home Strategy.
At UHN, we continue to face challenges with tackling emergency room overcrowding and patient flow but we are making progress through the ED GIM project and the ED Notification project. With ED Notification, when a patient visiting on of UHN's EDs matches predefined criteria, a secure electronic alert is sent to a Toronto Central CCAC Coordinator's blackberry. That coordinator then meets with the patient to assess whether the patient would benefit from community or home supports. Since implementing ED Notification in January 2006, the number of Toronto Central CCAC referrals from UHN has quadrupled, alleviating some pressures on the ED.
Shared Information Management Services (SIMS) is working with partners across the Toronto Central LHIN to improve access to community health services from our acute care setting. By integrating information management projects across the partnership, they are improving the referral process, coordinating services and helping patients get the supports they need, when and where they need it.
Thank you to everyone for your dedication to these important initiatives that are benefiting UHN patients and their families.
