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.

Dear Colleagues, we have reasons to be optimistic this week.
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.
