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.
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.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

Ways You Can Help
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.
They say that heart is valued most in hockey, but they have the wrong organ.
It should be the brain.
Heart may have a great deal to do with how a hard-checking and even harder-shooting defenceman with the Nashville Predators, Shea Weber, will make $14-million (U.S.) this season, or how a driven centre, Sidney Crosby, can be paid $12-million a year to play for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
But it is the brain that costs NHL players, costs the league and insurance companies and, for that matter, costs everyone involved in future earnings in everything from contracts that injured players will never sign to endorsements they will never receive.
Charles Tator of Toronto Western Hospital is acutely aware of the physical costs of injuries to the head. The Canadian neurosurgeon is a leading international expert in concussion research and treatment, and as founder of ThinkFirst Canada and a board member of Parachute Canada, has dedicated his career to injury prevention and the healthy enjoyment of life.
This Saturday at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre at Toronto Western, Tator and two colleagues – Richard Wennberg and researcher Carmen Hiploylee – will be key presenters at the Canadian Sports Concussion Project's third annual symposium.
