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.

Researchers have discovered how to diagnose Alzheimer's disease with more than 82 per cent accuracy by evaluating the interplay between four linguistic factors; and developing automated technology to detect these impairments.
The study, led by Dr. Frank Rudzicz, Scientist, Toronto Rehab, is published in the December issue of the
Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. The method and automated application of the assessment is proven to be more accurate than the current initial assessment tool used by health-care professionals. It can also provide an objective diagnostic rating for dementia.
"Previous to our study, language factors were connected to Alzheimer's disease, but often only related to delayed memory or a person's ability to follow instructions," says Dr. Rudzicz, who is also assistant professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto and a Network Investigator with the AGE-WELL Network of Centres of Excellence. "This study characterizes the diversity of language impairments experienced by people with Alzheimer's disease, and our automated detection algorithm takes this into account."
