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.

Living today in Canada are at least 800,000 people who have survived cancer. This figure will likely double by 2021 – meaning, by the most conservative estimate, Canada will be home to 1.5 million cancer survivors.
This is nothing but extremely positive, encouraging news.
As cancer treatments get more effective, and prognoses get better and better, it leaves behind individuals who will need to be monitored differently by the healthcare system. That is due to the disease they once had and the medications used to fight it.
These Canadians will, in what is an unfortunate truth, face a heightened risk of certain health complaints, the most serious of which occur in the heart.
Cardio-oncology is an emerging field that focuses on heart conditions in patients who have been previously treated for cancer.
A new term:
The Ted Rogers Centre, in focusing on heart failure, has created Canada's largest program on
cardiotoxicity – a term that broadens to include not only the after-effects of cancer, but other chronic illnesses such as diabetes, obesity and rheumatoid arthritis.
