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.

Ways You Can Help
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.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one of our experts for an interview. It’s also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases, podcasts and more.
1) As always, I'll start with our safety highlights from last week – including some incredible stories of TeamUHN coming together:
2) It's the big week: Our 2019-23 Strategic Plan will be introduced soon and guides the next five years for our staff, physicians, researchers, learners and volunteers – TeamUHN! I will send everyone a note once it's ready so please keep an eye on your inboxes. We also have a plan for sharing this important work with those who don't have convenient access to email.
3) Thank you to those who participated in our Open Forum. Now that I've hosted a few – alongside our very own Oprah, Gillian Howard (Vice President, Public Affairs & Communications) – I'd appreciate hearing your feedback. Here is a short 3-question survey where you can share anonymous feedback. And, if you weren't able to tune in, here is the link to watch. The question with the most votes asked what we could do to improve trust between senior leadership and our staff. To hear my response, go to 1:02:03 in the video. This is an important matter and I hope I can count on you all to share your ideas on how we could do better.
4) Last week, I finally had the chance to finish part two of my Pharmacy tour. Thanks to Jin Huh (Senior Director, Pharmacy), Anna Lee (Director, Outpatient Pharmacy) and Olavo Fernandes (Director, Pharmacy Clinical Operations) for organizing a roundtable discussion with our pharmacy site leaders and service managers. I was grateful for their thoughtful questions and for the opportunity to discuss how we might help reduce burnout for our frontline staff. A conversation we will continue and revisit often.
Roundtable discussion with colleagues in Pharmacy (L to R): Olavo Fernandes, Jin Huh, Rita Kwong, Monique Pitre, Philip Lui, Bassem Hamandi, Gary Wong, Olivia Ng, Celina Dara, Roy Lee; Amita Woods, Muhammad Zuberi, Alison Branigan.
5) Finally, I'd like to acknowledge UHN genetics pioneer Suzanne Kamel-Reid who is retiring at the end of this month, which is great news for Suzanne and bittersweet for all of us. She will also receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Lung Cancer Conference. Since 1990, Suzanne's commitment to advancing cancer diagnostics has grown the Laboratory Medicine Program's Clinical Genetics department from a two-person team to the largest cancer genetics testing program in Canada. We wish her a happy and fun-filled next phase of life!
Have a good week,
