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 University Health Network has grown out of a series of mergers between our current hospitals, as we have adjusted and change to accommodate our growing and changing patient community in and around the GTA.
In 1986, the Toronto Western Hospital merged with the Toronto General Hospital becoming, respectively, the Toronto Western Division and the Toronto General Division of The Toronto Hospital. On January 1, 1998, the Toronto Hospital was amalgamated with the Ontario Cancer Institute/Princess Margaret Hospital, and in April 1999, the name was officially changed to the University Health Network.
On July 1, 2011, UHN integrated with the Toronto Rehab Institute, a move which has physically expanded us to eight locations around the city, and allows us to better serve our patients by bringing together acute hospital care with the rehabilitation care that so frequently follows a hospital stay.
On January 1, 2016, UHN integrated with the Michener Institute, now named the Michener Institute for Education at UHN. This new relationship is a first in Canada, for integration of a health care organization and an educational institution. Our integration offers an opportunity for students in a variety of health professions, just as it offers UHN and all the hospitals which take part in the Michener program, the ability to work with students who will be the future of health care in this province.
Each of our hospital sites, and our education institute at Michener, has its own unique history. Learn more about our sites and how they grew to become a part of UHN.
Altogether, the Hospital may be regarded as the highest development of the modern institution, and the citizens of Toronto have ample reason to be proud of it, as it reflects the spirit of advance to such a marked degree. It is a far cry from the humble beginning made in 1820, and no better illustration of the progress of science and of humanitarianism can be found ... One wonders if the next century will be as full of marvels as the last has been, and whether these hospitals will be as much of an anachronism in 2013 as the old York General would be to-day.
