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 is committed to providing a healthy, safe and comfortable environment for all our employees, patients and visitors. Smoking and second‐hand smoke is the leading cause of preventable death and there is no safe level of exposure to second‐hand smoke, even when that exposure occurs outdoors. As a result, UHN has committed to becoming a smoke-free environment.
The smoke‐free policy prohibits the smoking of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes for all persons in or on all UHN-owned grounds (areas currently designated as smoking areas will be removed). This includes parking areas owned by UHN. This policy extends to all persons on UHN property.
UHN’s smoke-free policy applies to employees, medical staff, volunteers, patients, visitors, learners and subcontractors.
UHN staff that use tobacco products, like our patients and visitors, will not be able to smoke on UHNproperty. Everyone has a role to play in ensuring compliance with smoke-free grounds, including approaching any person observed smoking on UHN property and informing them of the policy.
The smoke‐free policy does not ask staff, patients, students, or visitors to quit smoking, but rather, prohibits smoking on UHN property. For staff, patients, learners, and visitors seeking support to quit, there are resources available through UHN’s Outpatient Pharmacies, UHN Wellness, and through Community Partners (such as
Toronto Public Health,
Smoker’s Helpline, and
CAMH). UHN is committed to providing a healthy, safe and comfortable environment for all our employees, patients and visitors. This initiative is consistent with our goals of supporting good health and wellness.
Smoking is prohibited on all UHN grounds, including indoor and outdoor spaces and all UHN owned parking garages.
For many tobacco users, seeing others smoke provides a significant trigger and may compromise their ability to quit. In addition, allowing tobacco use on UHN property does not align with our commitment has a healthcare institution to promote health and wellness.
