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.

I wanted to draw your attention to the work on delirium that is going on at UHN. As many of you know, delirium is something that any patient can experience for a variety of reasons including infection, medical illness, surgery, trauma, or reactions to medication. Elderly patients are particularly vulnerable and delirium can have an effect on how an individual responds to care and how the recover.
Next week is Delirium Awareness Week and I thought it was an ideal time to raise this issue and talk about what we are doing at UHN to address it and recognize what we can do to lessen the incidence of delirium for the people who come to us for care. The link (Delirium Awareness Week) will take you to a short summary of some of the work that has been done, some of the research in to the subject and the dates and locations in the hospitals where you can get more information.
The research tells us that 70% of all ICU patients experience delirium – which is staggering. While I know that we can't eliminate this response, there is much we can do to lessen it, which will be of benefit to our patients and to our health care professionals who often must cope with delirium in a patient and all of the attendant difficulties that delirium brings.
