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.

What is Twitter?Twitter is one of the fastest growing social media tools to hit the internet. It is a micro-blogging site where individuals can send short (140 character) messages which are called tweets. Everyone from Martha Stewart to our patients are using this tool to share updates to their friends, family and others. These updates can be as basic as what they ate for breakfast or as helpful as links to research studies.
A Message from Sommer Ellis, Social Media Specialist:"Twitter has become an epidemic in the online world and has great potential for UHN's communication initiatives. We're currently tweeting about our innovative research, our Foundation events, and reaching out to our community partners and patients for their feedback. Twitter is as much about listening as it is about talking so my advice is to start by listening to the conversation before you dive in and then have fun!"
How does it work?Twitter accounts can be created by individuals or organizations. Users send short updates to their tweeps (Twitter friends) on a variety of topics. Twitter can be accessed from your personal computer or your mobile phone.
Where can I find the UHN Twitter account?Twitter is currently blocked at UHN so when you're at home visit: www.twitter.com/UHN. You can also check out some other UHN tweeps such as @CICCUHN, @desouzanurse, @pmhf, @tgwhf, and @UHNNursing.
