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 the uninitiated, a hospital Emergency Department (ED) is all high-stakes drama. Teams of healthcare professionals racing to save patients suffering a heart attack, stroke, or accident.
Those incidents happen. But they only capture a fraction of what comes through the doors each day at UHN. The Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital EDs receive 120,000 patient visits a year for a range of ailments as diverse as the population they serve.
Cuts, contusions and puncture wounds. Dislocated hips and shoulders. Respiratory issues. Fractured and broken bones. Mental health and addiction issues. Even foreign objects in the body – a moth embedded in someone's ear, or swallowed knives. This is the reality.
So, when UHN ED doctor Dawn Lim approached
UHN News about using her camera to document a "day-in-the-life" of a UHN ED, it was an opportunity that could not be missed.
After all, Dr. Lim not only intimately knows the ED through her work, she's also an exceptional photographer. She showcased her keen eye in
a powerful 2017 ED photo esssay for UHN Facebook, which got worldwide attention, including
on National Geographic's "Your Shot" page.
For this photo essay, Dr. Lim set out to tell everyday ED stories through her lens. They include 73-year-old woman, who arrived with a dislocated hip and a mechanic with a mangled finger. Also captured are ED staff members working to save the lives of an elderly patient suffering a stroke and a young man who attempted suicide.
The images are raw, gritty and powerful. They are also a beautiful tribute to the seamless teamwork, passion, courage and caring displayed by UHN ED staff every day.
