UHN was ranked number one on the 2020 list of
Canada's Top 40 Research Hospitals, released by
RE$EARCH Infosource Inc. UHN has held the top position on the list since its inception in 2011.
UHN research spending totaled $408.3 million in the 2019 fiscal year. In comparison to last year, UHN research spending increased by 12.5 per cent.
Along with UHN, a total of 19 Ontario research hospitals made it on the list. The other research hospitals in the top five for total research spending are the Hospital for Sick Children ($254.1 M), McGill University Health Centre ($203.7 M), Hamilton Health Sciences ($184.7 M) and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority ($181 M).
The annual rankings compare research hospitals across Canada according to their research spending data. Funds that were considered included grants, contributions and contracts from all internal and external government and non-government sources in the previous fiscal year.
Within the "Large Hospital" category (total hospital spending >$1B), UHN moved up a spot from third to second for research intensity—the dollars spent per researcher. In the same category, UHN maintained the number one ranking for research hospital intensity, which is defined as the percent of research spending versus total hospital spending.
"These latest results are a reflection of the commitment of University Health Network to create a healthier world through discovery and innovation," says Dr. Brad Wouters, UHN’s Executive Vice President of Science and Research. "It also reflects the dedication and partnership of the patients that we are fortunate to serve. This important work takes a dedicated research community — one that is resilient, agile and steadfast in their perseverance.
"This achievement is possible thanks to our many partners, which include academic, philanthropic, government, private and community partners. UHN is fortunate to be supported by our three foundations—The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation and the Toronto Rehab Foundation—that play a key role in advancing our strategic goals by enabling excellence in discovery, education and patient care."
