At UHN, we strive to deliver Compassionate Care & Caring. Learn more about the services and supports that are available to you throughout your journey.
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.
At the heart of everything we do at UHN are our Healthcare Professionals. Refer a patient to one of our 12 medical programs. Learn more about the resources and opportunities available for professional growth.
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
of our experts for an interview. It's also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases,
podcasts and more.
Last week Joy Richards, Vice President Patient Experience & Chief Health Professions, let everyone at UHN know that Sharon Rogers, Senior Director, Patient Relations, will be stepping down from her role at the end of May. Sharon has been a critical part of UHN for many years and Sharon and her team have helped thousands of patients, family members and staff solve problems and celebrate the compassion exhibited every day by staff throughout UHN. Sharon has also helped colleagues outside UHN, published on the work that Patient Relations does each day and provided wisdom and advice to members of the senior team. We will be organizing a celebration for Sharon later, but I wanted to personally thank her today for all of her work, her humour and her compassion on behalf of our patients and their families. I am also delighted to know that, after some time off, Sharon will be working with Charlie Chan, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, a couple of days a week and assisting with our approach to risk mitigation and management in the clinical setting.
Office of Stewardship and Sustainability and
Rumour Has It
The Office of Stewardship and Sustainability recently launched an
Intranet Site to provide more information on high-priority projects designed to support safe and quality patient care, optimize the way we work, and steward our resources. As part of the new Intranet Page,
a new anonymous UHN staff forum called Rumour Has It, has been created to address questions and rumours you've heard about changes underway at UHN.
Click here to read more about this confidential forum, key themes raised by staff so far, and how we will respond to your inquiries moving forward.
Final Town Hall on Strategic Planning
We are finding a new time for the Town Hall at Michener and I will include the information in
Looking Ahead as soon as we have confirmed the details. You can learn more about our progress on UHN's Strategic Plan and provide feedback on what you have heard so far by visiting www.renewinguhn.ca. I will also be touching on the plan at the Annual General Meeting in June and scheduling another set of Town Halls at all sites in the fall to share the final plan.
