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.

Vision is identified as the primary sense required for a full and productive life.
That's why eye health is so important. Currently, over half a million Canadians are considered visually impaired.
In Canada, the number one cause of vision loss is age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Although age is a major risk factor for AMD, there are other ways that you can reduce your risk of developing the disease as you get older.
"Eating a healthy diet that includes vegetables rich in colour and oily fish such as salmon, can decrease a person's chances of developing AMD in old age," said Dr. Shaun Singer, Director, Comprehensive Ophthalmology, UHN. "Not smoking and wearing UV protective eye wear when playing or working outdoors also goes a long way to preserve your eye health."
May is Vision Health Month – a national awareness campaign designed to educate Canadians about their vision health and eliminate preventable sight loss. The following tips can help maintain healthy eyes as well as reduce your risk of developing AMD or other eye diseases.
Being proactive about your eye health will reduce your risk of eye disease and help keep your eyes healthy for years to come.
