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

Planning is officially underway for a new state-of-the-art patient tower that will redefine the Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) campus.
DIALOG, the architects selected by UHN to design the tower, have submitted a development application to the City of Toronto seeking approval on its site plan.
The tower will be built on the northwest corner of TWH (the site of the current visitor parking lot at the corner of Bathurst and Nassau Streets) and is planned to be 15-storeys – 11 floors are occupied by patient care, with the remaining reserved for mechanical and design purposes.
“The TWH campus was constructed over a century ago, and the existing infrastructure cannot continue to meet today's growing patient volumes or match the advanced skills of its medical teams," DIALOG wrote in the application. “As one of the top-ranking hospitals across the country, TWH is now well-positioned to add a new patient tower to its campus, equipped with the most advanced operating rooms, an exceptional patient-focused experience, and a culture of surgical innovation powered by the latest technologies."
“We are building A Healthier World and the future of patient care," says Rebecca Repa, Executive Vice President of UHN. “Working through construction for a project of this size is complicated, but we are committed to supporting TeamUHN and the neighbouring community.
“This tower will help us clear surgical backlogs and create a state-of-the-art working environment – the end result will be well worth it."
First announced in April 2022, the new tower will have surgical services, 80 new patient beds, an intensive care unit, Medical Device Reprocessing Department and more.
The project is possible thanks to a $34 million planning grant from the Government of Ontario – one of the largest planning grants in Ontario history – and generous donors from UHN Foundation.
Updates will be posted on UHN.ca throughout this project.
