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.

Ways You Can Help
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.
The Excellent Care for All Act (EDFAA), which came into effect last June, requires all Ontario hospitals to create annual Quality Improvement Plans (QIPs) and make them available to the public.
These plans require hospitals to set targets related to the safety, effectiveness, access and patient-centredness of the care it provides. The legislation also requires hospitals to establish quality committees, implement patient and care provider satisfaction surveys, develop a declaration of values and establish a patient relations process to address and improve the patient experience.
The great news is that here at UHN we are already doing many, if not all, of these things in some format and we already track many of these indicators on our Balanced ScoreCard.
Within our QIP we have outlined our aims and measures for the next year. These include initiatives such as continuing to improve our hand hygiene compliance rates. As you know, our Infection Prevention & Control Department has been successfully leading our hand hygiene campaign and we continue to see increasing results thanks to each and every one of your efforts.
We will also aim to continue to reduce our emergency department (ED) wait times by ensuring expedient flow of admitted patient from the ED to inpatient beds. Our ED has been working hard to triage patients as safely and quickly as possible and will continue to review their processes.
We will be focusing on many other initiatives in addition to improving our hand hygiene compliance and ED wait times. To learn more, check out our QIP and supporting documents which are available on our public website at
