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

Wave 3 continues to challenge us – but Canadian healthcare workers are stepping up and fighting back. On Wednesday, six RNs and three physicians will be arriving from Newfoundland and Labrador to help in our ICUs (Intensive Care Units) and COVID-19 units for at least three weeks. This is extraordinarily generous of these professionals and was arranged through Ontario's Ministry of Health and Ontario Health, as well as the Premiers of both provinces.
In addition, we have received six perfusionists from other centres, as well as nursing colleagues from Women's College Hospital who were deployed to our Toronto General GIM (General Internal Medicine) Unit. We also thank and recognize the 15 Allied Health colleagues from Toronto Rehab who have been redeployed to our acute sites this week.
In the face of daunting numbers, this is inspiring news and I hope you will join me in celebrating it. This show of dedication and selflessness is what ties everyone in healthcare together, whether you are patient-facing or not. So, as we start the week ahead, I hope you share my strong sense of optimism, knowing that we as Canadians will always stand up to help our fellow citizens. Our deepest thanks to all the colleagues at UHN who are supporting these deployments.
