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.

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.

Congratulations to Sally Paluck on her retirement after 40 years at UHN! Sally started her career at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) in 1982 as a Registered Respiratory Therapist. She was one of the first RTs in the operating rooms. In that role she was instrumental in creating anesthesia supply carts and standardizing the equipment used by Anesthesiologists. She has made numerous contributions to the Operating Rooms and the Respiratory Therapy department, including taking on the special project of merging the departmental policies when TWH and Toronto General Hospital (TGH) merged into one entity in 1986. Sally's commitment to continuing education was evident when she proceeded to take the Anesthesia Assistant (AA) course at The Michener Institute and helped to pioneer the role at UHN. Her flexibility and adaptability have led her to perform this role at TGH, TWH, Princess Margaret Hospital, Women's College Hospital, and Kensington Eye Institute; all areas where UHN provides AA services. Her dedication to UHN was further demonstrated as she recently postponed her retirement in response to the departmental demands caused by the pandemic.
This week is Teaching and Learning Week at UHN, a time to recognize and thank you all for the exceptional teaching and learning that happens each day, in every area and department across UHN! Each of you contributes to a welcoming, inclusive and supportive environment for continual learning and preparing the next generation of health care colleagues in these ever-changing times. Please take a moment to recognize co-workers and learners who help others learn and grow at UHN, and more. Wishing you all a Happy Teaching and Learning Week!
Deployment and testing of non-medical devices (e.g. workstations and printers) that are necessary for using Epic is in progress across the organization. The Synapse device testing team will contact managers approximately two weeks in advance of their visit to ensure the scheduled arrival dates/times do not interfere with patient care. Leaders have been asked to make every possible effort to allow the team to visit as scheduled to ensure this critical work is completed on time. All staff are asked to not remove the stickers placed on tested devices, and to not move devices once they have a green "Ready for Epic Go-Live" sticker. It will take everyone doing their part to ensure devices are functioning as they should, contributing to UHN having a safe and effective transition to Epic. Learn more about device testing here.
