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.

Today, the longest federal campaign comes to an end and I would encourage everyone who hasn't yet cast a ballot, to take the time to vote today. It is a civic responsibility and while I know that many people think that a small thing such as an individual vote doesn't matter, I am reminded of a saying I heard the other day on the radio. It went roughly, "If you think a small thing can't make a difference, you've never met a mosquito." Words to live by – in elections and many other decisions we face every day.
For those who would like to see the Employee Engagement results from our last survey, all of the material is posted
here in the Human Resources area of our intranet. The results are broken down by area and give leaders an idea of how they can work to support staff. We need a fully engaged work force where people feel respected, valued and free to step forward and talk about how things can be better – for our staff and for our patients.
The flu shot campaign and the safety culture survey are just ahead with flu shots now available and the safety culture survey launching next week. I am asking all of you who work at UHN to get vaccinated this year against the flu and all of you to take part in the safety culture survey. There's more information about the flu shot campaign today on
UHN News and once again we are partnering with UNICEF Canada so that we'll not only keep you, your family and patients safe but also provide vaccine and clean water to children in the developing world. The safety culture survey is a critical step in our journey to making this the safest hospital in Canada and we will need everyone's input.
I'll close as a brand new Blue Jays fan expressing delight in the result of the Blue Jays-Texas Rangers series! Let's hope the Jays can come from behind again against the Kansas City Royals. If you're backing the Blue Jays as well, wear your Jays gear tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 20, and take a photo – then send it to UHN News via Twitter at @UHN or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll share these photos in an album on Facebook to show our support for the Blue Jays.
