University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
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.
In the last few weeks, we've been busy rolling out the various elements of our new brand. You now have access to the logo and brand book (http://intranet.uhn.ca/applications/iNews/ViewStory.aspx?s_id=2010), as well as an FAQ that will answer most of your questions about using our new identity (http://intranet.uhn.ca/applications/iNews/ViewStory.aspx?s_id=2011). Part of our branding process was to identify what makes UHN unique, and we believe we've done that with our new tagline, Courage Lives Here. I think you'll agree with me that it takes courage to be part of a place like UHN, whether you're a health care professional, a researcher, or a patient. What we do can be difficult and challenging, and I'm proud to lead an organization where people rise to that challenge each and every day, by finding the courage within themselves to face those challenges.Today, I want to introduce you to a new website that's dedicated to telling stories of courage at UHN. Some of these are stories that you've submitted to me over the past few months as we've been asking for more stories. Others will be familiar to many of you, such as the story of Taylor Binns, recipient of our first "Courage Lives Here" award at this year's AGM.
I encourage you all to please visit the site at http://courageliveshere.ca. Along with reading our stories of courage, you can nominate someone or share your own story through this site. We'll be updating it frequently with new stories, so bookmark it, share it with your friends and family, and come back often. In the coming weeks, we'll be announcing a courage contest for staff, so keep your eyes on the Intranet and UHNews for updates. And you can always write to email@example.com to share your own story of courage.
