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.

Starting this year, the 115 million meals served annually in hospitals across Ontario will contain more locally-sourced, sustainable food.
Energy and Environment department at UHN has received a $124,000 grant from
Greenbelt Fund, a non-profit organization that supports the viability and sustainability of agriculture in Ontario. The grant will fund a study of the day-to-day barriers that prevent UHN from providing local food to patients.
Crowdsourcing: are you a foodie?
Once these barriers are identified, the UHN Choices for Ontario Food project will launch an online forum for crowdsourcing ideas to overcome them. Project coordinator, Adeline Cohen, sees this as a critical part of the process and hopes the UHN community will participate to generate more than 400 ideas.
"We are inviting hospital staff, patients and members of the food industry to help us identify ways of better linking the local food system to the hospital," said Cohen. "We hope to leverage Toronto's extremely diverse food culture to solve the most significant challenges around using more sustainable, locally-grown food in patient meals."
Fresher food for patients
The crowdsourcing website will launch in July and Cohen says the next step will be to launch several pilot programs to implement the community's ideas. She hopes the program will increase the amount of food UHN purchases locally by three to five per cent a year.
Achieving these goals will require more co-operation between the growers, processors, distributors and the hospital, and doing so will mean fresher food for patients. It will also mean reducing food miles, stimulating economic growth in Ontario, and fostering a better understanding of the food system's importance to health and wellbeing among consumers.
