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.

For the past year, Wellness has partnered with the Thoracic Surgery department to offer an exercise program for staff. The program, called REFRESH, is a customizable program available for units and departments. It can include anything from Yoga or Pilates, Zumba, resistance training, and even relaxation techniques.
In Thoracic Surgery, REFRESH consists of two 20-minute sessions, once a week, focusing on physical fitness.
How does staff find time to exercise during their busy shifts?
Marijana Zubrinic, Nurse Practitioner, is a champion of the program within her department. Every Tuesday, when staff starts their shift, she reminds them that REFRESH will be taking place at 4 p.m. Then at 4 p.m., she gathers everyone together before the session begins.
"I would definitely recommend the REFRESH program to other departments," she says. "Some nurses have voiced that the afternoon fitness class gives them more energy than their afternoon coffee. Others have said that it's helped with their chronic back pain. And one nurse had voiced that she's able to run up the subway stairs faster now, which was really great to hear."
The REFRESH program is available for all UHN clinical units and teams who want to squeeze in a quick wellness break at work. Sessions run for eight weeks, with the first eight weeks free.
