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 want to update everyone on the results of the Patient Safety Culture Survey that was distributed to all UHN staff in November 2013. The survey was conducted as part of our preparation for the accreditation on-site survey visit scheduled for November 2014.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your participation – 2,071 staff responded to the survey, providing valuable information on how to support UHN's commitment to patient safety. There are some very encouraging results. The survey confirmed that we see UHN with a strong learning culture, where patient safety is a high priority, and senior management has a clear picture of the risks associated with patient care. The survey results also highlighted when a serious error occurs, we think about it carefully and determine how to prevent the same mistake in the future. The survey results highlight that talking about errors and communication barriers is an area for improvement.
Here are some highlights of the overall survey results by theme:
The overall results, including strengths and opportunities, were communicated to the UHN Operations Committee. The results were reviewed in detail by the Patient Safety/Clinical Risk Management team to determine next steps and put strategies in place. The action plans will focus on promoting open communication, teamwork, and a just culture.
Thank you for your ongoing support. I am looking forward to working with everyone in preparation for the survey visit.
