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.

September 15 is Rehabilitation Day. Today we offer thanks to our many colleagues across UHN, and in the community, who continue to demonstrate a commitment to rehab care that is improving the lives of many people living with the effects of disability, illness and aging. Our teams at Toronto Rehab are among the best in the world in many disciplines, including brain and spinal cord rehab, cardiac rehab, geriatrics, musculoskeletal rehab and complex continuing care. On the research side, our scientists and learners at the KITE Research institute continue to search for new treatments and solutions that will benefit our patients for years to come through a focused approach on prevention, restoration, enhanced participation and independent living. UHN is a world leader in rehab thanks to the hard work and dedication of our many scientists, therapist, physicians and other clinicians. On the third anniversary or Rehabilitation Day we send everyone engaged in rehab services at UHN a wholehearted thank you, and invite you to keep the conversation going by following @TRI_UHN on twitter, and using the hashtag #RehabilitationDay.
Our UHN family was devastated to hear of the tragic loss of one of our colleagues, Lynette Sequeira, who was an administrative assistant in the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre working for Dr. Eric Horlick for 8 years, the entire time she was at UHN. Lynette was not one to stand idle if there was work to be done or encouragement to be offered. She loved her work and would never fail to stop and assist anyone who needed an extra set of hands, or a kind word. All who met her, even briefly, can attest to her selflessness. Her friends and colleagues will remember the unconditional positivity and support she provided her patients, colleagues, and supervisors every day she came into work. Lynette was a woman of faith, and preached the kindness and love of her faith to all. My sincerest condolences go out to Lynette’s loved ones and all her friends and colleagues.
