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.

Congratulations to Colleen Scully on her retirement after 40 years at UHN! Generations of nurses have benefited from Colleen's mentoring as she supported them while they learned the in-charge role – helping them problem-solve and identify resources. Colleen built many relationships with staff, and enjoyed getting to know the people behind their hospital role. During codes, Colleen's great skills in de-escalation, along with the guidance and decision-making she provided, were greatly valued by staff. With all the adventures she has faced in her 40 years at UHN, Colleen could certainly write a book! We are grateful for her years of dedication and friendship, and thrilled to have her stay on in a casual AOS (Administrator on Site) role.
