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

One of the best places to work in Canada
Glassdoor has published their annual list of the top 25 places to work in Canada and UHN has been ranked #18 – we are also the only health care organization to make the list. It's an incredible honour as the list is generated based on employee feedback and rankings. We are so fortunate at UHN to have such engaged staff who provide open and honest feedback. I think the summary of the nearly 200 reviews perfectly describes our organization - a "nurturing environment and great people to work with." At UHN we all come together to transform lives and communities through excellence in care, discovery and learning, and I believe that is what makes our organization great.
During our PVP celebration events we had a chance to hear from some of UHN's Patient Partners who really connected with our primary value, "the needs of patients come first" (I encourage you to print out
this PVP poster for your workspace to remind yourself of our values, as well as our purpose statement and principles). One way we're working to put this value into action is with the creation of a Patient Portal, called myUHN. The Patient Experience team shared a sneak peek of this incredible technology at the event, which you can now watch
here. The portal, which will launch on January 30th, 2017, will provide patients with appointment reminders, access to their lab results, health resources and will enable patients to share their health information with others. For updates on the Patient Portal, you can follow @myUHNPortal on Twitter. This digital platform will make it easier for patients to access and share their health information, and is truly helping to put their needs first.
