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.

"Health is like beauty – in the eye of the beholder."
He's visited 94 countries to understand what health means around the world and start a global conversation about the kind of care we need versus what our health care system delivers. The results have produced a radical re-conceptualization of health as what Dr. Jadad explains is "the ability to adapt and self-manage in the presence of physical, mental and social challenges. We should consider health as a general concept versus a concrete definition." Just how radical is this idea? It made the cover of the British Medical Journalearlier this year.

"Now we have a new role – to enable people."
Working with a team of colleagues from across UHN, Dr. Jadad has developed the Staircase of Support; a structure that encourages communities to build a health care system that reaches beyond hospital walls. The Staircase of Support envisions a health system that mobilizes its resources to cross traditional boundaries and empower patients and caregivers to self-help, build stronger support networks in the community, access effective primary care teams and use hospital services only when the hospital is actually the best place for them to get the care they need.
"We need to turn health professionals back into healers – people who go beyond fixing your condition and look at you as a whole person," says Dr. Jadad. "We need to recuperate what we've lost – a sense of reliance on each other."
