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.

Good Tuesday morning,
I hope everyone had a relaxing long Canada Day weekend. Thank you to our colleagues who worked so others could spend time with their loved ones.
Ontario's new Premier Doug Ford and newly sworn-in
Minister of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) Christine Elliott. I'm also pleased to welcome
Helen Angus back to the MOHLTC as Deputy Minister. We are ready to work in alignment with their priorities.
Many of you are waiting for UHN to determine our future directions regarding our
Health Information System.
I've been visiting a unit at least once a day to get a better sense of what some of our staff are facing. One area I keep returning to is our
Emergency Departments (ED), so I was grateful to be invited to meet our emergency medicine group. What I heard was not surprising but the discussion was serious and stays on my mind. Here are a couple of takeaways:
While there are challenges, I also know there is much to celebrate at UHN. Allow me to continue highlighting our
Local Impact Award nominees and some of what was said by their colleagues.
I often see patients, staff and visitors sitting outside and it is important that our grounds are as well cared for as we can manage. We can all surely do our part to support a positive, healing environment for our community. I'll share a habit of mine that I hope you'll consider:
Pick up at least one piece of trash if you spot it while making your way around UHN. And if you're concerned about hand hygiene, I know UHN has many hand sanitizing stations.
Use Purell liberally!
I was proud to see some of our
cutting-edge research featured in two excellent documentaries:
Last week saw former
Deputy Minister Dr. Bob Bell's retirement tea in the De Gasperis Conservatory. Bob's Ministry colleagues hosted this important celebration in recognition of his four years at the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as Ontario's Deputy Minister. On behalf of UHN, we thank Bob for devoting so much of his career to our organization and to Ontario's health system.
Finally, I invite you to join me at
my first Open Forum at UHN (Thursday July 12 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. – Michener auditorium). Livestreaming will be available
here. If there are any specific topics you'd like to talk about, please feel free to email me in advance.
Thanks for reading,
