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.

For 78-year-old Ann Levitt, recovering from a stroke, which caused the entire left side of her body to be paralyzed, was a months-long process.
After many hours of occupational and physical therapy, she regained movement in her left leg so that she could move with a walker, but her upper body remained very limited.
"Initially, I couldn't move anything on my left side," she recalls. "My lower body came back before my upper body.
"After occupational therapy at the rehab centre, I still only had a bit of function return to my hands."
For many like Ann, who experience a stroke or spinal cord injury, it can take weeks or months to recover, or even years. In fact, some patients never make a full recovery.
That's why rehabilitation is critical, and having access to life-changing rehabilitation for a longer duration than the global health system offers, as well as innovative rehabilitation technologies, can make all the difference to how well and how fast a patient recovers.
Enter UHN's KITE Innovations and Rehabilitation Clinics (KITE Clinics), a self-sustaining enterprise that is both a research and clinical environment that offers rehabilitation services to the public.
KITE Clinics fills a void in the healthcare system by simultaneously providing services patients need while ensuring there's enough staff working on important clinical research studies.
"Because KITE supports both clinical and research work, we feel that we can fill an existing gap in providing innovative services," explains Tharshini Chandra, Clinical Manager for KITE Clinics.
