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.

In 2010, Toronto Rehab became the first rehabilitation centre in Canada to receive a Stroke Services Distinction Award from Accreditation Canada. I am very pleased to let you know that the Toronto Rehab Stroke Rehab Service has successfully maintained their designation, earning high marks from Accreditation Canada following their recent bi-annual visit to the service earlier this month.
Receiving this award is an acknowledgement of the exceptional inpatient and outpatient stroke rehabilitation care provided at Toronto Rehab's University Centre and Rumsey Centre sites. All of the national standards of quality care, innovation and excellence and education were met or exceeded and, like hospital Accreditation, participation in the Stroke Services Distinction program provides an opportunity to continuously improve and enhance the quality of services for people living with stroke, which is a leading cause of disability in Canada.
Many of us, particularly those at Toronto Western, are familiar with the Stroke Rehab Service team through initiatives such as the Neuro Collaborative designed to help improve access to care and flow of stroke and brain injury patients from acute care to rehabilitation. The investment from our integration savings allows the Stroke Rehab Service to continue to build on their exceptional, high-quality work and create even more inpatient and outpatient capacity in the stroke care continuum in the coming months.
On behalf of Sue Jewell, Senior Clinical VP at Toronto Rehab, Dr. Gaetan Tardif, Physiatrist-in-Chief and the rest of your UHN colleagues, I extend congratulations to Joanne Zee, Clinical Director, Dr. Mark Bayley, Medical Director, Brain & Spinal Cord Rehabilitation Program, Ramona Mileris, Service Manager and each and every member of the Stroke Rehab Service team for a job very well done!
