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.

Toronto Rehab researchers are developing new methods to mass-produce a shoe material that may help decrease slips and falls in winter conditions.
The material, which is made up of glass fibers embedded in a compliant rubber, could one day be used in the soles of slip-resistant winter boots. The researchers describe the manufacturing process in a paper in the journal
Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing.
The researchers are testing the material in
WinterLab —a self-contained lab at Toronto Rehab that recreates typical winter conditions and can tilt to a slope of up to 15 degrees.
