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.
April 1, 2013 marks the launch of an exciting new initiative at UHN – the Health Equity Data Collection project.
The Toronto Central (TC) LHIN is interested in better understanding the needs of various populations within Toronto. Over the past three years, CAMH, Mount Sinai Hospital, St. Michael's Hospital ("Tri-Hospital") and Toronto Public Health have developed and tested a questionnaire to improve the collection of patient demographic data. Examples of this enhanced demographic data include information such as income, ethnicity and sexual identity.
Starting in April, 18 TC LHIN hospitals, including UHN, will begin using the same tool to collect demographic data from patients on a pilot basis. A special thank you to Ambulatory Transplant at Toronto General and Cardiac Rehab at Toronto Rehab and Toronto Western for their leadership in piloting the project at UHN. Patients in these programs will be invited to provide the enhanced demographic data. This is a voluntary project - patients who decline to participate will continue to receive the high quality care already provided at UHN. Lessons learned from the pilot projects will be invaluable when we expand health equity data collection to the rest of UHN in the years to come.
This project will help us achieve one of our five-year milestones: Improved measurement of health equity within our clinical programs. Ultimately, the data will help enable a deeper understanding of the needs of our patients, will ensure different populations are given equal access to care and enable evidenced-based quality improvement strategies where inequalities exist.
The Health Equity Data Collection project is being launched by the Health Equity Steering Committee, chaired by Jan Lackstrom, with support from Corporate Planning and SIMS.
You may see educational posters and pamphlets at Toronto Rehab, Toronto Western and Toronto General. Please feel free to take a moment to read them. Updates about the project will be included in UHNews.
We look forward to great success with this project, collecting information that will help UHN provide the best possible care for all.
If you have any questions about this initiative, please feel free to contact Jan Lackstrom at
