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.

Last week, we turned a corner in the fight against COVID-19 with a few important milestones at UHN. As of last Wednesday, there were no active COVID-19 patients in the Medical Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MSICU) at Toronto General Hospital (TGH) and as of last Friday, there were no active COVID-19 patients in the Medical Surgical/Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit (MSNICU) at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH). That does not mean there weren't any patients who were admitted for COVID, but rather none testing positive for the active virus in those units. Across UHN, we have about 100 patients with us who were admitted with active COVID and are now recovering. We also closed the last COVID-dedicated inpatient unit at TWH. UHN still has one COVID-dedicated unit open at TGH, but we anticipate it too will close in the coming days.
Having no active cases in our ICUs and the closure of the dedicated inpatient units are incredible milestones in this long fight against COVID-19. My thanks to all members of TeamUHN who supported these units and the many COVID-19 patients in our care throughout the pandemic. Sadly, this does not mean we can let our guard down as we are seeing cases reported among those who are partially or fully vaccinated.
This has been a long and difficult road for all of TeamUHN and our colleagues across the entire health system, and it is important to celebrate these victories – both big and small. These past few weeks have given us much reason for optimism, and hope that a return to some semblance of normal life is on the horizon, but we are not yet out of the woods. It is important we stay steadfast in our fight by getting both doses of the vaccine, and continuing to follow all hospital policies, Public Health guidelines and the current guidance from all levels of government. We have come so far, and I have faith that a cautious and steady approach to reopening, supported by strong rates of vaccination will see us through. So, let's celebrate these milestones together, and continue cheering each another on – which includes staying safe by following the Public Health guidelines. Your dedication to patients, colleagues, and the community throughout this long and tiring pandemic has been remarkable, and I am deeply grateful to you all.
