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.

On behalf of everyone at UHN, I want to extend my condolences to our colleagues who have friends and relatives in the Philippines. Some of you know that you have lost loved ones. Others are waiting for news and the waiting is very hard. Many of you have said that you want to be able to help in some way. The best way to help the relief efforts in the Philippines is to donate directly to registered charities that have a fund specifically earmarked for typhoon relief. By doing this before December 8, you will double your donation as the Government of Canada has said that it will match all gifts given in this manner prior to that deadline. Charitable organizations which are accustomed to working this disaster relief would include the Canadian Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders and UNICEF but there are many others. What is important to ensure that your donation is matched by the government is that the charity is registered and has a designated typhoon relief fund.
I’ll close this Straight Talk with a request that is about something close to home. I know that many, many people cross University Avenue by dashing from the front of Toronto General to Princess Margaret or Toronto Rehab. Recently, a staff member was hit by a car and injured. The result of a collision between a car and a pedestrian can be devastating and we need to break the habit of jaywalking in front of the hospitals. Cross at the lights or take the tunnel because no meeting or appointment is worth the risk of serious injury or death.
