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.

October 24-30 is Canadian Intensive Care Week an opportunity to celebrate our ICU colleagues and their tremendous service to UHN and our patients. Our critical care teams care for our sickest patients and provide support to their families when they are at their most vulnerable. They make difficult decisions daily, and provide support for one another whenever it is needed. Please join me in expressing sincere gratitude for our critical care colleagues, whose resilience and composure keeps our ICUs running efficiently.
This week is also Canadian Patient Safety Week! At UHN, we are focusing on improving Escalation of Care (EOC) – the communication of a concern to the most appropriate team member. EOC remains one of the highest-risk times in the patient care journey, and one that contributes to some of the highest proportions of avoidable harm at UHN. As of June 2022, a UHN patient experiences serious avoidable harm (“SSE1-4") related to EOC every 31 days (on average). This week, Quality, Safety and Clinical Adoption will introduce you to EOC as we enter EOC Month in November. Watch this short video to learn more about EOC at UHN:

A new sexual health clinic at the Princess Margaret seeks to close a gap in care for cancer patients at UHN and across Canada.The Sexual Health Clinic will treat patients experiencing sexual dysfunction – both physical and psycho-social – resulting from their diagnosis and treatment. The Sexual Health Clinic will initially offer treatment to patients with prostate cancer, where sexual dysfunction can be as high as 90 per cent. The clinic plans to expand next year to other specific cancers including bladder, testicular, ovarian, kidney, cervical, and head and neck. This is an important step in normalizing a topic that can be uncomfortable for both patients and oncologists. As Dr. Andrew Matthew, Head of the Sexual Health Clinic, told UHN News, "patients don't ask, physicians don't ask, and because of that, institutions don't offer – which is why there are very few sexual health clinics in cancer hospitals in North America." This is yet another example of how UHN is thinking differently and charting new paths for our patients.

And, in another great read from UHN News,
don't miss this story about how the occupational therapy team at Toronto Rehab's Lyndhurst Centre helped a patient rediscover his love of cooking meatballs. With a therapy plan that included cooking-inspired activity to improve pinch, grip strength, and fine motor movements, the patient achieved his goal of getting back in the kitchen. "At the core of our practice is helping people find meaning or purpose," Tess Devji, an occupational therapist at Lyndhurst, told UHN News. The story was another reminder in Occupational Therapy Month about the life-changing work done by OTs, occupational therapy assistants, physiotherapy assistants, and rehab assistants.
As we all know, UHN is an amazing hospital with exciting and enlightening things happening around every corner. Going forward, we'll end this update by sharing a video from our new TikTok account that reminds us what a special place this is. This week,
