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.

Dr. Donald Weaver's goal in life is to never have to give bad news to an Alzheimer's patient and their family again.
Over the 30 years he's been a neurologist and Alzheimer's disease (AD) researcher, Dr. Weaver has grown accustomed to informing patients and their families about AD's grim prognosis.
"Last week I met yet another family that I really felt badly for," says Dr. Weaver, sitting in his office at the Krembil Research Institute, where he's director.
"This family brought in a loved one who is 53 years old, well-advanced in AD. They had seen their general practitioner, who told them, 'Go see a neurologist, now.' So the family comes in, and they ask, 'Do you have a pill that's going to make this all better?' And you have to say, 'No, I don't.' I tell them what they have and I tell them what the prognosis is. And the room is filled with tears," says Dr. Weaver.
"I've been doing this for decades, and I'm tired of doing it. Someone needs to come up with a drug."
