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.

Good Monday morning,
I'll start with an observation: I think it's hard to claim a complete lack of bias when deciding whether the work of one's own organization is world class. Which means that recognition from those who are independent of UHN is an essential ways and means to evaluate our clinical and academic performance. That said, after spending eight weeks here,
I can safely say this is truly a world-class place with world-class science. Last week, I toured a number of our research areas and look forward to continuing these tours.
In addition to my deep dive in research last week I also had the pleasure of visiting some of
Toronto Rehab's (TR) clinical units and programs at our University site.
As many of you know, UHN, along with our partner hospitals, was on standby after the Toronto Police Service (TPS) received an unconfirmed threat last week. We thank TPS for acting quickly to ensure public safety and thank UHN's Emergency Preparedness team for coordinating across teams and sites so we would be ready to respond. Thankfully this quick action by our police colleagues prevented what might have been a series of tragic events.
Finally, I'll end by sharing more great work from our
Local Impact Award nominees.
Thanks for reading,
P.S. Thank you to those who attended last week's Open Forum. I will be sending a summary on that later this week.
