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

What I need to know: UHN's wait times are comparable to peer hospitals but longer than the organization's internal stretch goal. At Toronto General, where the target is 17.2 hours to an inpatient bed, year-to-date results show the wait is 27.6 hours. At Toronto Western, where the target is 21.5 hours, the year-to-date figure is 32.4 hours. When compared to fiscal year 2019-2020, Toronto General is 6.2 hours higher and Toronto Western is 13.2 hours higher. Drivers of ED wait times include impacts from health human resources challenges, more patients being held in EDs waiting for isolation spaces or availability of telemetry packs.
