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
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.
As you may know, we are in the middle of working through UHN's next strategic plan. And, as we work, we would like your ideas about where we need to take UHN and what matters to you. Here are two ways of sharing that feedback.
1. UHN's 2019-23 Strategic Plan: What should we focus on?
Help shape our strategic plan by visiting
UHNstrategicplan.ca and answering the three questions there:
What makes UHN special? What are UHN's strengths? What matters most to you?Your answers will help identify what UHN should focus on over the next five years.
My sincere thanks to the staff who visited our UHN Strategic Planning booth at the Michener, Princess Margaret and Toronto Western annual BBQs and answered these questions. Staff from Toronto General and Toronto Rehab are encouraged to visit the booth at their BBQs this September. I'm glad to see the number of responses from each site is comparable so far - although that might mean there's room for a little friendly competition! Of course, a strategic plan shaped by the wider UHN community will be the ultimate prize.
If you haven't had the chance to answer these questions yet, please visit
UHNstrategicplan.ca and share your responses online.
2. Share your feedback about last week's Open Forumvia this 2-minute survey
Thanks all for a great Open Forum last week, I had a lot of fun being in the hot seat and left with a better understanding of what the UHN community is thinking about.
Here is the video recording for those unable to attend. We discussed the public sector hiring freeze, what assurances we will offer to those who speak up for respect and civility, how our site-level strategies will be integrated with UHN's strategic plan and more. Special thanks to
Gillian Howard for moderating the Q&A and giving Oprah a run for her money!
It was a pleasure answering your thoughtful questions and I thank those who voted on questions to ensure we discussed what matters most to the community. If you have a moment, I'd appreciate hearing your feedback
via this 2-minute survey. I will be working to answer all the questions and those questions and answers will be posted soon.
Thank you for your time,
