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 have included our complete hand hygiene audit in chart form below this message because I think it is important to recognize the significant improvement throughout the organization which, at the end of November, means that we have reached our 2010 goal on the Balanced Scorecard as an organization. My thanks to everyone for their work on this goal and for protecting our patients and yourselves from hospital-acquired infections – I am very proud to lead this organization.
And now – we must maintain and improve our rates until the four points of hand hygiene become our normal practice throughout UHN. The charts show out 3 month rates for all units, sites and UHN as a whole and then the results for the month of November. What is key is that, throughout the organization there is dramatic improvement but, as I've said before, this organization is seldom satisfied with 70% on a test! So, I'll continue to challenge everyone to do better and we'll set our target higher in 2011.
Keep up the great work.
