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.

Last week, many of us were privileged to participate in celebrations for National Indigenous Peoples Day with a full day of outdoor events at the Gitigan (garden) at the Michener Institute for Education at UHN. For the first time, a sacred fire was lit at UHN after a sunrise ceremony and I was among those who enjoyed some drumming and singing with Sara Luey in the afternoon. My deepest appreciation goes out to the Indigenous Health Program and Indigenous staff at UHN who organized the day, in partnership with the Centre for Wise Practices in Indigenous Health at Women's College Hospital and the Toronto Central Regional – Indigenous Cancer Program.
Congratulations to Rosie Paiva on her retirement after 43 years at UHN. Rosie began her journey with UHN at age 14 by working as a file clerk in the human resources department of The Doctor's Hospital. When it merged with Toronto Western Hospital in 1996, she moved to the Pain Management Clinic and, later, the Diabetes Education Clinic. She joined the Toronto Western Family Health Team (TW FHT) in 2010, working as an administrative support clerk. She supported her team with encouragement and positivity, taking on any challenge so the team could thrive. Her colleagues say that Rosie's passion and commitment to TW FHT have been evident in everything she has touched and that she has been a dedicated employee, a mentor to new team members, and a loyal friend who is always eager to help her colleagues be successful. The TW FHT is indebted to Rosie for all of her hard work and wishes her nothing but the best in this exciting next chapter. We know that Rosie already has redecorating plans and is signing up for art and cooking classes in the fall!
Congratulations to Jennifer Palmer on her retirement after 45 years of nursing and 40 years at UHN! She graduated with a diploma in nursing in 1976 and Midwifery in 1980, working at Southern General Hospital in Scotland. Jennifer started at Toronto General in 1982 and worked in many areas before joining the Medical Day Unit in 2002, where she has been an integral part of the team. Jennifer has contributed to the key initiatives in the Medical Day Unit, presented at many conferences, and taught many nurses to become experts and feel in love with nursing. For many years she chaired the Unit Council committee, and her dedication to quality patient care has had a significant impact. Jennifer leaves a vast legacy for the nursing profession and all our patients. Jennifer's easy laughter and fierce affection for her patients will be greatly missed in the Medical Day Unit. She has been a steady presence and source of comfort to those living with sickle cell disease, thalassemia, and other red blood cell disorders, and we are grateful for her many years of service.
Last Friday was St-Jean Baptiste Day, a special holiday for our friends in Quebec and an important day of celebration for French Canadians across the country. The day commemorates the beauty of the French language and the rich culture and vibrant heritage of the Francophone communities that enrich our country. UHN is made better each day by our diverse staff. I extend my best wishes to all of the Francophone and French-Canadian members of TeamUHN.
