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.
Patient Pillow Program
Cardiac patients at UHN receive operations for all matters related to the heart and are left with a large incision on their chest. Pillows are provided to the patients to ease the pain when they leave the hospital and return to their day-to-day activities such a s wearing a seat belt or dressing. Cardiac pillows cushion the incision area and allow for a more comforatble recovery.
This is a hands-on role and does not require interaction with patients, their families and visitors. It directly reports to the supervising staff at Volunteer Resources. It is important that Patient Pillow volunteers have great attention to detail and are willing to work with their hands.
