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.

Health Ministers from across the country unveiled 10 national benchmarks to demonstrate progress in reducing wait times for five areas: hip and knee replacement, cancer surgery, cataract, MRI/CT and cardiac treatment. Today's announcement is a key commitment made by the First Ministers in their 10-year Plan to Strengthen Health Care.
Wait times are one of the ways we can measure the quality of the health care we receive. Currently, wait times can range dramatically across the province, which we saw with the launch of the province's wait times website. Wait times can also vary across the country. By establishing national benchmarks, each government can implement their own strategy, but with a common target in mind.
UHN has long supported the province's wait times strategy and the need for greater accountability and transparency. For example, we were the first hospitals to post more than 125 medical and surgical wait times on our website.
Developed based on research and clinical evidence, provincial and territorial governments will now strive to provide the following services under these benchmarks:
For many of these procedures, UHN's wait times are close to the benchmarks. For hip and knee replacement surgery, for example, our patients are waiting less time than the 26-week benchmark.
