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.

What is the number one piece of advice you give to your patients to empower them to improve their heart health?
The number one piece of advice I give patients actually comes in the form of a question. I ask the patient what they want to accomplish. It is important for patients to be able to articulate their purpose for being in the cardiac rehab program – why they joined, what they want to accomplish, and how attaining their goal will help them and/or others. Once they answer that, the program can be tailored to their specific needs.
What is the one thing that you do to maintain your heart health?
My wife and I have been vegetarians all our married lives (33 years). I also exercise as much as I can - cycle in the summer and run in the winter. This past summer from April to September I cycled just over 1,000 miles. My goal this summer is 1,250 miles.
