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.

Key reminders and updates
What happened at the Executive COVID-19 IMS Table
In response to the concerning state of COVID-19, UHN activated its Executive COVID-19 IMS (Incident Management System) table. Membership includes our Executive Leadership Forum and other members of COVID-19 work streams. The group meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is a snapshot of the discussion.
COVID-19 vaccines: Change in Ontario’s rollout including extended period between doses, targeted pilots for people 80-years-old and over, and congregate settings
In support of this change,
we now have a pre-registration link for eligible UHN patients 80-years-old and over. Please visit the
UHN Vaccine Registry for more information on who is eligible and how to register.
We also started vaccinating people at shelters thanks to support from our mobile vaccine teams, Social Medicine Program and Toronto Public Health.
The disappointing news is that last week on March 5, Ontario announced it will be extending the period between first and second doses from 35 days to four months (16 weeks).
Read the release here. We recognize and share your disappointment in this change.
I sent a message with more detail which you can find here (Corporate Intranet > COVID-19 Preparedness > Internal Communications > “Ontario is extending…”). For those interested in reading more about how this decision was made,
here is a story for your consideration from CBC News.
