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.

UHN has launched a research study to determine the prevalence of coronavirus infection in healthcare workers.
The study, titled "Research Platform to Screen and Protect Healthcare Workers" – or RESPECT for short, will determine how common asymptomatic COVID-19 infection is among healthcare workers at UHN.
"We urgently need to understand the disease and to quickly develop and implement screening strategies to protect our patients and healthcare workers," says
Dr. Deepali Kumar, Clinician Investigator at Toronto General Hospital, who is leading the study.
Asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals can transmit COVID-19, which can be a significant risk in healthcare settings, especially in long-term care facilities.
"As Canada's largest research hospital, UHN is uniquely positioned to rapidly initiate, conduct and coordinate multisite research," says Dr. Kumar.
"We will use our expertise in supporting multisite clinical trials to standardize the collection of biospecimens from healthcare workers and deliver them to research laboratories for testing."
Through this study, the research community will contribute to the fight against COVID-19 in the following three ways:
Participation in the study is voluntary. Other research hospitals are interested in joining RESPECT and the team is working to expand the platform across the province and the country.
"Our staff have been working around the clock to ensure that we have the infrastructure to fast track this study in order to support our frontline staff," says Brad Wouters, EVP Science and Research at UHN. "It's remarkable what we can accomplish as a team during these challenging times."
This study is supported by the MSH-UHN Academic Medical Organization COVID-19 Innovation Fund, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation.
