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.

Ways You Can Help
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.
Last year, UHN used about 35,000 units of blood to help patients.
Now, we need our employees' help to acquire enough blood to meet the need across the country.
Canadian Blood Services (CBS) has an annual national average goal of 835,000 units of blood. To meet this demand, about 100,000 new donors are needed every year.
Rise to the challenge
To promote awareness and increase blood donations, CBS organizes the Annual South Central Ontario Hospital Challenge with a goal of 1,000 unit donations. The sixth Annual South Central Ontario Hospital Challenge, running from June 1 to July 31, features 20 participating hospitals.
This challenge has grown significantly since it started in 2010 with a total of seven participating hospitals. By 2014, the number of hospitals had grown to 18.
All participating hospitals have a combined annual goal of 1,880 donated units. That goal has been consistently met, with almost 50 per cent of the donations taking place during the Hospital Challenge.
UHN's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital and Toronto Rehab Institute are repeat contributors amongst the 20 hospitals participating this year.
How to help:
In order for the blood donation to count towards the Hospital Challenge,
donating parties (employees) must register and identify their hospital's PFL ID number, as instructed above, before donating.
If employees have donated any time from January 2015 onwards without providing their hospital's PFL ID number, they can retroactively make it count towards this challenge by simply completing the above-outlined online registration form.
