At UHN, we strive to deliver Compassionate Care & Caring. Learn more about the services and supports that are available to you throughout your journey.
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.
At the heart of everything we do at UHN are our Healthcare Professionals. Refer a patient to one of our 12 medical programs. Learn more about the resources and opportunities available for professional growth.
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.
There are so many ways to exchange ideas, information and news. Some individuals want to hear what’s happening in 140 characters, while others prefer videos. With so many communication tools available, we want to know what’s working, what’s not and how you’re getting your news on all things UHN. To help us better meet your needs, the Public Affairs team is asking everyone to fill out this survey. Please take the time to complete
this survey as I am personally committed to ensuring that we are meeting your communication needs.
Your feedback will shape the way we do internal and external communications. As a direct result of your feedback in past surveys, the Public Affairs team has phased out printed newsletters in favour of timelier, online news stories, started producing more videos, and increased the number of stories featuring staff and patients. As an added bonus for completing the survey, they’re giving out nine gift cards to a coffee shop of your choice (Tim Hortons, Starbucks or Second Cup). I look forward to hearing from all of you about how you are getting your news.
On Wednesday, June 15th, we will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM). At this meeting I will review UHN’s journey over the last year and where we are heading in the years ahead. The AGM will start at 4:00 p.m. in MaRS Auditorium. The meeting is open, so please join us if you can. This is a great opportunity to reflect on the changes that have occurred over the past year, and learn more about the progress we’re making on our goals as an organization and our priorities going forward.
If you are unable to make it to the MaRS Auditorium, you can watch a livestream at the following locations:
As many of you know, this is Kathy Sabo’s last month at UHN. Kathy has had an impressive 40-year career in health care, with the last 15 years spent at Toronto Western. She has been an extraordinary leader during her time at UHN – as the TWH lead for SARS & Pandemic emergency response planning, the UHN lead for Ebola planning, the co-Executive lead for the implementation of LEAN, the UHN lead for the Alternate Level of Care Strategy and implementation, and leading the creation of a Positive Leadership program at Toronto Western – just to name a few. This month will be full of celebrations and events to mark this important milestone. I know so many of us have stories about Kathy and I hope you’ll make it out to some of the celebrations to share them and wish Kathy all the best as she gets ready to take on retirement!
There are lots of opportunities for communication and reflection over the next month. I encourage you to share your thoughts in the survey, when you see me in the hall or using social media on
LinkedIn or Twitter, either
@UHN or with me
