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.

A surgical site infection (SSI) occurs after a surgical procedure as a result of bacteria gaining entry to the body during the surgery. SSI prevention includes many things, such as proper use of preventative antibiotics, proper disinfection of the skin and proper management of the surgical wound.
At UHN, we employ a surgical checklist to ensure that antibiotics are administered at the appropriate time for all of our surgeries, in all of our operating rooms. Toronto General Hospital was one of 8 hospitals that participated in a worldwide study that showed that the use of the surgical checklist reduced complications, like SSI, by one-third.
