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 untapped potential of stem cell-based therapies to repair or regenerate damaged cardiovascular cells is increasingly an area of focus for the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) and the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine.
"The ability of stem cells to become any cell type in the body means that they have the potential to be used to treat, and perhaps cure, devastating and costly illnesses such as heart disease," says Dr. Michael Laflamme, newly-recruited research scientist with a lab headquartered at MARs, alongside Dr. Gordon Keller, an international leader in both the growth and application of embryonic stem cells.
"Unlike most organs in our body, the heart is very poor at repairing itself after sustaining injury. What if scientists could use a special kind of stem cell to produce new heart muscle and inject those new cells into a patient's heart as a fix," adds Dr. Laflamme, who is also the Robert R. McEwen Chair in Cardiac Regenerative Medicine in the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine at UHN.
Read the full story about Dr. Laflamme's work, including the role PMCC cardiologists, cardiac and vascular surgeons are playing in what is widely viewed as the key to a future involving personalized medicine.
