University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community

Good Monday morning,
we announced the creation of the Krembil Brain Institute. This is more than a name change as this recognizes that the neuroscience researchers in the Krembil Research Institute and the clinicians and clinician-researchers in the Krembil Neuroscience Centre have joined forces as the Krembil Brain Institute. I know the formation of the Krembil Brain Institute has been a long-term goal for the neuroscience community at UHN so hearty congratulations! This move will help synchronize their academic direction and productivity, better integrate models of patient care, and focus our important fundraising activities and strategies.
I know you will all wish to join me in acknowledging our distinguished colleague and a predecessor UHN CEO: Deputy Minister Dr. Bob Bell has announced he is stepping down upon the recruitment of his successor. UHN owes a lot to Bob, who served as our organization's President & CEO from 2005 to 2014. Ontario equally owes a great deal to Bob for his distinguished service during his term as Deputy Minister. We salute Bob for his impact on Ontario healthcare!
Some great teams and individuals were highlighted at our Annual Meeting during the awards ceremony, but there were many nominees we didn't hear about – so over the next several weeks I will highlight some of what was said about those nominated by their colleagues. We should be proud of the breadth and scope of work here and while my notes don't come with a crystal award, I assure you they won't fall out of anyone's hands and break on stage!
I've also mentioned how I'm a big proponent of simplicity. While UHN is large and complex, job descriptions and role expectations needn't be. We now have a Role Clarity Working Group at UHN reviewing all clinical leadership roles and job descriptions. Let's aim to make these clear and simple.
Since Day 1, I've talked about how quality of work life is our collective priority at UHN. Diversity and inclusion are fundamental to creating an environment that supports staff and I am grateful for the observances that remind us to pause and reflect. This month, we celebrate
Pride Month and
National Indigenous Peoples Day.
Finally, if you'd like to help shape next year's Annual Meeting, please fill out this
short survey. And if you weren't able to join us, a reminder that the
video recording is available online.
Thanks for your time,
