University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one
of our experts for an interview. It's also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases,
podcasts and more.
As you walk through the halls of UHN, everyone you pass by - patients and their families/caregivers, friends, staff, physicians and volunteers - has hopes, dreams, fears, passions and aspirations as to what their day may bring. What if you could get a glimpse into their lives to make a deeper connection?
People of UHN is a photoblog created in collaboration with
Partners in Care and
OpenLab. The series is designed to capture courageous and vulnerable moments of people providing and receiving care across UHN.
"Each of us has stories that shape and guide us," says Susan Brown, Senior Director, Strategy & Transformation, and Chair, Partners in Care committee. "Stopping to connect and truly understand makes us better health care professionals, and connects us as human beings."
With a vision of creating a more connected and engaged community,
People of UHN uses a rapid storytelling approach to build understanding of diverse roles and experiences. The project hopes to foster trust and create a networked community within UHN and beyond.
As the first step in the series, the blog features individuals at Toronto Western Hospital. The people featured in the blog are approached at random and asked to contribute. Their responses have been inspiring and moving.
"The willingness of people to share their stories is tremendous." said Jen Recknagel, Strategic Design Lead with OpenLab and the photographer on the project.
People of UHN has a similar format to
Humans of New York and will share one image and quote from inside the halls of UHN every Tuesday and Thursday. The idea for
People of UHN was brought forward as an opportunity to contribute to transforming the way health care is delivered and experienced.
