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.
As you know we are all working hard to maintain a balanced budget in 2010/2011. Following the Ontario budget announcement we continue our commitment to avoid layoffs and to maintain in-patient services to our patients. As always at UHN we are looking for efficiencies and changes to the way we do work in order to free up funding to support patient care.
Over the last several months your leadership team has undertaken an in-depth review of discretionary expenditures (the use of consultants, travel, catering, conferences, communication devices and other items) and associated policies across UHN to see if they can improve UHN's 2010/2011 budget strategy.
Most recently, Emma Pavlov led a team consisting of Directors and Managers from across UHN who developed a set of guidelines which set out new limits and approval levels for UHN's discretionary cost items. Recently approved by the Business Operations Committee these new guidelines will be effective April 1, 2010 and will remain in place for a two year period at which time they will be reviewed.
Over the next couple of weeks associated polices within UHN such as the Expense Reimbursement and Petty Cash Policies will be revised to incorporate these guidelines so stayed tuned for more information.
