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.

Do kids hear about cancer? How do they hear about it?
With World Cancer Day coming up on Feb. 4, we asked kids those very questions to find out what they know about the disease.
Be sure to watch – their answers might surprise you.
Kids Talk: the ABC's of Cancer
It's all part of our video series, 'Kids Talk: the ABCs of Cancer'.
In the videos, you'll meet five grade 1 and 2 students from Children's Garden School in Toronto.
You'll also hear from Princess Margaret Cancer Centre experts Dr. Mary Gospodarowicz, Medical Director, Dr. Ben Neel, Research Director, and Kelly Antes, social worker with the Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care team, who each shed light on the importance of talking about cancer.
'Hear about it everywhere'
Antes says it's important to know the facts about the disease – even at a young age.
"Kids hear about cancer everywhere- from their friends or their families, on the way to school, on TV… and sometimes, what they picture in their minds is actually worse than it might be. It's important to educate them," Antes said.
Watch the video above to see the first part of this three-part series.
Plus, visit us on Mon., Feb. 3 and Tues., Feb. 4 for parts 2 and 3. That's when we ask kids, "What do you know about cancer?" and "Can people with cancer get better?"
World Cancer Day is February 4. It's time to talk!
