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

In any job, especially ones as demanding as those in healthcare, there will inevitably be moments of frustration and even times when you ask yourself, "why am I doing this?" The thing that got me through those tough moments when I was working at MD Anderson was the organization's purpose – "Making Cancer History". I was captivated by the mission and comforted with the knowledge that the work I was doing was aligned with the core of the organization I worked for.
In Joey Reiman's book, The Story of Purpose, he tells us that purpose is "… an intention that creates a contribution." I firmly believe that all of us in UHN demonstrate this every day. This is why I am so excited that we will be kicking off our Purpose Values and Principles Open House next week (dates and times are below).
The PVP Open Houses will give you an opportunity to drop-in and provide your thoughts on the draft of our Purpose and Values and share ideas with us on how UHN can live out our purpose and values through guiding principles. Once the open houses wrap up, we will be taking your thoughts and incorporating them into our final Purpose, Values and Principles, which will be shared in June at the Annual General Meeting.
By refreshing our purpose, values and principles and ensuring they reflect UHN as a whole, on the days when it's tough and you're thinking "why am I doing this", you can lean on UHN's purpose.
As a quick reminder, the dates and drop-in times for the open houses are:
