UHN is once again ranked first on Canada's Top 40 Research Hospitals list for 2018.
The list of top research hospitals across the country is compiled annually by Research Infosource Inc.
UHN has appeared in the top position of the list every year since the rankings began in 2011.
UHN's research expenditures for the 2017 fiscal year were $350.1 million, representing 17.3 per cent of its total hospital expenditures and an increase of 5.4 per cent over the previous year. The Hospital for Sick Children and Hamilton Health Sciences round out the top three, with research expenditures of $209.6 million and $207.0 million, respectively.
"UHN is proud to have been at the top of the list since 2011," says Dr. Brad Wouters, Executive Vice President, Science and Research at UHN. "This ranking demonstrates the value of research at UHN, in Toronto and across Canada.
"It is also a testament of the sustained dedication to improving and innovating healthcare held by UHN and its three sister foundations – the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and the Toronto Rehab Foundation."
In terms of research intensity, which measures the amount of research spending per appointed researcher, UHN placed second in the "Large Hospitals" category - climbing two spots from last year's ranking. The top Canadian research hospital in this ranking was London Health Sciences Centre/St. Joseph's Health Care Centre.
