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.
At the heart of everything we do at UHN are our Healthcare Professionals. Refer a patient to one of our 12 medical programs. Learn more about the resources and opportunities available for professional growth.
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.

As three hospitals located in the City of Toronto, we serve a diverse population representing many cultures, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. To deliver care to such a diverse patient population, UHN has implemented many creative and forward-thinking initiatives (ex. Patient Centred Care, Workplace Diversity Training, Champion of Diversity Award) and programs (ex. interpretation and translation services covering 65 languages, multilingual patient education material, culture and language focussed clinical services) to support patients from all backgrounds. We recently submitted a plan entitled "Open Doors" to the Toronto Central LHIN outlining how UHN works to provide equity of access and quality of care for all patients through our programs, policies, initiatives and partnerships.
To build on our health equity practices at UHN, the report proposes several key initiatives:
I encourage everyone to read our health equity plan. This plan will no doubt encourage discussions at all levels inside (ex. the Board of Trustees, the Senior Management Team, Patient-Centred Care Committees) and outside of the organization (ex. hospital Community Advisory Committees, LHIN), which I believe will help us to build on our current approach to health equity.
