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.

This week (June 13-19) is National Blood Donor Week: Each year, UHN provides patients with 40,000 units of life-saving blood. The Laboratory Medicine Program's (LMP) Blood Transfusion Laboratories (BTL) are home to comprehensive, 24-hour blood transfusion services for all surgical and clinical programs across UHN. BTL support is critical for complex cardiovascular, transplantation, bone marrow transplant, and surgical oncology procedures as well as immunology programs. As UHN looks to gradually increase clinical activity, there is an urgent need for blood donation across the city and province. Over 100,000 new blood donors are needed in Canada this year to keep up with demand. Canadian Blood Services reports that one in two Canadians is eligible to donate blood, but only one in 60 does. Thank you to members of TeamUHN who rolled up their sleeves and supported this life-saving cause. Review the list of
eligibility requirements for more information and take the
two-minute eligibility quiz. If you are determined to be eligible online, you will be able to
book your first appointment.

A
