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.
University Health Network has received the results of the Ebola test that was sent to Winnipeg. The result is negative which means that the Ebola isolation protocol is discontinued.
This means that the patient will not be isolated and staff caring for the patient will not be using special personal protective equipment for Ebola while providing care.
No further information about this patient will be released.
Staff at UHN followed the protocol because the patient has a travel history from Nigeria within the past 21 days and also had a fever. When travel history and any of the symptoms (fever, chills, bleeding and/or chills) are present the protocol requires staff to use full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when working with the patient, that the patient be placed in isolation, that a test for Ebola be submitted and that precautions continue until such time as Ebola has been ruled out, symptoms resolve themselves or a diagnosis of another illness is confirmed.
These protocols are designed to protect our staff, our patients and visitors to the hospital.
In the coming months there will be occasions at UHN and at hospitals throughout the GTA where such protocols are put into effect. UHN has been working on our response for some time and – in this case – the response followed the protocol throughout and everyone working with the case has been professional, caring, trained and prepared.
In order to respect patient privacy there will be no further comment on this case.
