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.

Brad Pope was having a fairly routine day at work when he suddenly felt short of breath. This was alarming for Brad, a 47-year-old avid cyclist from Toronto.
"It felt like I was climbing at a high altitude, dealing with thin air, and couldn't catch my breath," he recalls.
He went to a walk-in clinic, where he was referred for an echocardiogram and a stress test. It was after those tests that Brad was given grim news: heart failure.
"In that moment, all I could think was, 'I'm dying,'" he says.
After his local hospital sent him to UHN's Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC), he came under the care of Dr. Heather Ross, Division Head of Cardiology at PMCC, Site Lead for the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research, Loretta A. Rogers Heart Function Chair and Pfizer Chair in Cardiovascular Research, who told him some hopeful news – he would get on his bike again.
Brad managed his condition with medication, but a year later had the first heart attack he could feel.
Emergency room staff told him he had a 95 per cent blockage of the left anterior descending artery.
"Things were pretty critical," he says.
After having emergency surgery to remove the blockage, he was told by Dr. Ross that a new remote monitoring application called Medly would help manage his condition.
Dr. Ross, along with Dr. Joe Cafazzo, Executive Director of UHN's eHealth Innovation and Wolfond Chair in Digital Health, developed and launched Medly in 2016. This tool is a heart failure monitoring platform that's accessed through a mobile app.
Patients enter daily metrics, such as their weight, blood pressure and heart rate, and that information is assessed by a rules-based in-app algorithm in real time. An actionable feedback message – normal, caution or critical – is sent to patients, and if there is any indication of deteriorating health, the patient's care team can intervene quickly.
Through remote monitoring, clinicians have access to continuous data, so treatment is not restricted to what is observed during hospital visits alone.
