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
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.

It is a pleasure to connect with you across care, research, and education through this weekly CEO update – all in service of A Healthier World.
In response to COVID-19, UHN has re-activated its Executive COVID-19 IMS (Incident Management System) table and we are meeting on a daily basis. Membership includes our Executive Leadership Forum and other members of COVID-19 work streams. This is a snapshot of the discussions this past week.
UHN's Senior Management Forum (SMF) represents a broad range of voices and skill sets from across the organization and provides direction and oversight in service of patients, TeamUHN and our vision of A Healthier World. SMF meets monthly. The last SMF meeting was held on February 24, 2022.
February 28 is International Rare Diseases Day. Nearly 3 million Canadians are afflicted with a rare disease, and more than 7,000 rare diseases have already been identified with new ones emerging every year. Here at UHN, we have world-class clinics and programs that support those with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Malignant Hyperthermia, and Thalassemia, just to name a few of the rare diseases that collectively impact millions worldwide. Both research and clinical care are critical to the well-being of our patients and I am grateful for all those members of TeamUHN who work in these areas.
A series of confidential, virtual focus groups, led by the Nursing Workforce Planning Committee, has been launched to ask nurses what matters to them and what can make working at UHN better.
