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.

TORONTO, November 20, 2015 – Today marks the one-year anniversary of the largest private donation in Canadian health-care history that enabled a unique collaboration between three world-renowned institutions creating the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research.
With $130 million from the Rogers Family and matching funds from The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), University Health Network (UHN) and the University of Toronto (U of T) raising the total to nearly $270 million, the Centre has now established programs that will change the face of heart failure for the one million Canadians who live with it.
"Leading investigators from diverse fields are using the latest knowledge and technology to save the lives of children and adults with compromised hearts," said Dr. Mansoor Husain, executive director (interim) of the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research. "This level of funding and cooperation means that we can make serious inroads in cardiac health using genomics, stem cells, bioengineering and targeted clinical care. This is world-leading research tackling a growing epidemic."
The Centre is now advised by a panel of scientific experts from Stanford, Oxford, Harvard, Yale, Boston University, and the University of Ottawa.
"I'm impressed by the commitment and engagement of the Rogers family and the participating institutions to resolving important challenges in heart disease research and improving quality of care through research," said Mark Mercola, professor, Stanford University School of Medicine and member of the panel. "The Centre is well on its way to bringing together scientists and clinicians, and providing them with the means to develop new therapies for heart disease."
Heart failure is one of the fastest growing cardiovascular diseases in the world, and a major economic and societal burden in Canada, costing our health-care system up to $3 billion annually. From time of diagnosis, the average survival of a patient with heart failure is just two years – a prognosis worse than most cancers.

About the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart ResearchThe Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research aims to develop new diagnoses, treatments and tools to prevent and individually manage heart failure – Canada's fastest growing cardiac disease. Enabled by an unprecedented gift of $130 million from the Rogers Family, the Centre was jointly conceived by its three partner organizations: the Hospital for Sick Children, University Health Network, and the University of Toronto. Together, they committed an additional $139 million toward the Centre – ultimately representing a $269 million investment in basic science, translational and clinical research, innovation, and education in regenerative medicine, genomics, and the clinical care of children and adults. It is addressing heart failure across the lifespan.
