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.

This past weekend, we learned that former Premier Bill Davis died at the age of 92. Premier Davis will be remembered for many things including his support of publically funded education and his ability to work with colleagues of all parties to achieve consensus on the issues of the day. My condolences to his family and friends, many of whom continued to rely on his wise counsel long after he left public office.
Congratulations to TeamUHN's Ian Brown and Nerissa Maxwell, proud parents of Olympic Champions! During the Olympic Games in Tokyo last week, Team Canada won its second straight Olympic bronze medal in the men's 4x100m relay race – powered by sprinters
Andre De Grasse and
Brendan Rodney. At UHN, no one could have been cheering them on more loudly than Aaron's father,
Ian Brown (Ophthalmology Technician, Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute), and Brendan's mother,
Nerissa Maxwell (Nurse Manager, 5B Fell, Toronto Western). Congratulations to both families for this remarkable and exciting accomplishment.
The Joint Department of Medical Imaging (JDMI), in partnership with the Krembil Brain Institute (KBI), welcomes the arrival of two state-of-the-art, Siemens 3.0T MRIs at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH). This weekend, the Siemens Prisma and Vida MRIs were craned and installed in our TWH site. The Vida will be primarily focused on clinical care and the Prisma will contribute to advancing our research activities. The arrival of the MRIs are part of the final phase of the TWH MRI replacement project and was made possible through the generous support of the Slaight Family and the UHN Foundation in addition to UHN's own capital funds. My thanks to all from TeamUHN who worked diligently this past weekend to bring these exciting equipment safely on-site with minimal disruption to operations, especially to members Facilities, Management – Planning, Redevelopment and Operations (FM-PRO), JDMI, KBI and Surgery.
