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.

Sunday, June 5 was World Environment Day: Thanks to our Facilities Management – Planning, Redevelopment & Operations (FM-PRO) colleagues on the Energy & Environment Team for helping UHN to deliver planet-centred care, research, and education across our sites every day. Climate change is a major threat to health and we're grateful for their efforts in addressing pressing environmental issues, as well as fostering a strong culture of sustainability at UHN. In 2021 alone, they reduced overall energy use by 1.5 per cent and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 12,847-tonnes – the equivalent of taking 225 cars off the road. Energy & Environment has also been hard at work with 700 staff who volunteer for the Green Team – most recently the team volunteered for a planting day at the
Indigenous Healing Garden located at The Michener Institute of Education at UHN.

June is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Each year, 50,000 Canadians experience a brain injury, which happen as a result of a car accident, a fall, or a medical problem such as a stroke, brain aneurysm, brain tumour, or cardiac arrest. The team at
Toronto Rehab provides rehabilitation to people who have acquired non-degenerative neurological disorders, helping those with a brain injury work towards returning to their jobs, and living more independently.
The Hull-Ellis Concussion and Research Clinic at Toronto Rehab offers patients information about new research findings to improve concussion care.
The Canadian Concussion Centre at
Krembil Brain Institute includes world leaders in brain injuries, imaging, genetics, clinical care, neuropsychology, and psychiatry working together to diagnose and treat persisting symptoms of concussions and to do the research necessary to improve the diagnosis and treatment of concussions and their consequences. Learn more about the long-term consequences of concussion in a recent episode of Krembil Brain Institute's new podcast, 'Your Complex Brain'.
Starting today – Monday, June 6 – the free UHN shuttle bus pickup and drop-off location at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) has been relocated to the north corner of Nassau St. and Leonard Ave. The move is necessary because of a watermain replacement and road construction being carried out by the City of Toronto on Leonard Ave., Lippincott St., Oxford St., and Bellevue Ave. This change will be in place until November 30, 2022, and will in no way impact clinical operations at TWH. Staff who park in the Leonard garage will still have full access to the Leonard Ave. entrance.
