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.

Patients admitted to hospitals which treat fewer ischemic strokes are nearly 50 per cent more likely to die in the first week than those patients who go to hospitals treating higher volumes, says a new study from the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES).
An ischemic stroke is a sudden loss of brain function caused by the interruption of blood flow to the brain due to a clot or other obstruction.
Dr. Mark Bayley, Medical Director, Brain and Spinal Cord Rehab Program, Toronto Rehab, is a senior author on the research paper.
"Our study strongly supports the recommendations of the
Quality Based Procedures Clinical Handbook for Stroke produced by Health Quality Ontario, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Ontario Stroke Network," says Dr. Bayley. "These findings demonstrate that by consolidating acute stroke care in each region in Ontario, we can ensure that every person experiencing stroke will receive the best possible care."
The study was published in the journal
Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes. This study is the largest to date to examine the links between stroke care volume and mortality. The researchers reviewed all 73,000 adult ischemic stroke cases at 162 Ontario hospitals in a seven-year period between 2005 and 2012.
