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.

When is it appropriate to use antibiotics?Antimicrobial resistance isn't a new phenomenon. Germs have the ability to develop resistance – but the more drug exposure there is, the faster it develops in people, animals and agriculture.
The misuse of antibiotics is risky to patients – it can increase mortality, time spent in the hospital and lead to collateral damage – including a new infection with another bug like C. difficile – a germ that causes diarrhea in most, but may cause serious or fatal infections in others.
"Antibiotics are miracles of medicine," said Dr. Andrew Morris, Medical Director, Mount Sinai Hospital-University Health Network Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. "But we are at increasing risk of losing them unless we use them wisely, and when we need them."
Before prescribing an antibiotic, healthcare professionals should ask themselves:
- Why?- Which drug?- What dose?- What duration?
Nov.18-22 is Antibiotics Awareness Week.
