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.

The 2011 Nobel Medicine Prize was awarded on October 3, 2011 to three recipients, including one affiliated with UHN—Drs. Ralph Steinman, Bruce Beutler and Jules Hoffmann. Dr. Steinman was a member of UHN's International Research Advisory Board, which serves to advise research leadership on strategy and directions.
Dr. Steinman was recognized for the discovery of dendritic cells in the 1970s, a key regulator of the immune response. Understanding how these cells function not only led to much deeper understanding of how an immune response is initiated but also to new therapeutic approaches to cancer, infectious disease and autoimmunity.
Sadly, just after the award was announced, Rockefeller University in New York City, Dr. Steinman's home for the last 35 years, announced that he had died of pancreatic cancer on September 30, just a few days before the award was announced. Dr. Steinman was diagnosed with cancer four years ago, and was able to extend his own life using a dendritic-cell based immunotherapy of his own design.
UHN extends condolences to Dr. Steinman's family.
