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.

"It sucks". That was Joey Lavers reaction to his Type 1 diabetes diagnosis at age 14.
The "sucks" part for Joey is the relentless daily burden of painful needle pricks to monitor his blood sugar, and injections of life-saving insulin.
Now aged 19, Joey is buoyed by the research of UHN's Dr. Cristina Nostro and her colleagues at the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine.
Dr. Nostro has successfully developed insulin-producing cells from stem cells in her lab. With that success in the lab, Dr. Nostro is predicting human clinical trials within the next few years.
"It's exciting," says Joey, who says he'll even offer to be a "guinea pig" for the trial.
