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.

Hand hygiene refers to removing or killing micro-organisms (germs) on a person's hands. These germs may have been picked up during contact with patients, contaminated equipment or the environment. Visitors and patients may also unknowingly bring germs into the hospital setting. Hand hygiene is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of health care-associated infections.
Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is the preferred method of hand hygiene, but soap and water should be used whenever hands are visibly soiled. Hand sanitizer is preferred because it kills more bacteria, the emollients in it help maintain skin integrity and it is more readily available.
UHN reports hand hygiene compliance before and after health care providers have contact with patients.
UHN was one of the pilot sites for the Ontario "Just Clean Your Hands" campaign. We also have a comprehensive hand hygiene and environmental cleaning strategy in place — Clean Hands Care.
