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

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.
UHN is committed to ensuring that all of our physicians and staff are tuned into what is occurring across the organization. One way we do this is to share important information about the health of the organization and provide updates on key milestones and/or metrics at the end of each quarter. Previously, this has been done through the Balanced Scorecard, which was linked to our previous strategic plan. Part of the journey of renewal that’s underway is building the foundation to support a new strategic plan. As a result, we are temporarily pausing the Balanced Scorecard as a performance measurement and organizational communication tool, and providing quarterly updates on our eight Areas of Focus, instead. As a reminder, these areas are:
A few required metrics from the Balanced Scorecard will continue to be tracked over the next fiscal year. This will be done by the responsible Executive Vice President and reported up to UHN Board committees, as appropriate.
Areas of Focus Q1 Results and where to find them
This week we have released our 2016/17 Q1 results, which you will be able to find at
renewinguhn.ca. Under each area we have included a “Quarterly Progress” tab where you can learn how we are progressing against the milestones each area has set up (you can also find this by clicking the "What's New" button on each Area of Focus page). It will also feature highlights from each of our four hospitals on how they are implementing certain Areas of Focus. Overall, we have made significant progress on our milestones, putting us on track to achieve the goals we have set in each area.
Highlights and what’s ahead
Caring Safely completed their diagnostic phase and have begun to implement key initiatives at all of our hospital sites, while our
IT Transformation team held four co-design events with staff across UHN.
Patient Experience implemented smoke-free grounds at all UHN sites, and the MR/PET facility at Toronto General Hospital was completed, a key milestone for
Research and Innovation.
A big thank you for your hard work and dedication, which is helping us build towards our goals. The progress we have seen in the past quarter is because of your work.
