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.

Clinical Nutrition contributes to the overall health and quality of life of our patients. Optimal medical nutrition therapy can reduce complications, hospital stays and mortality. Appropriate nutrition therapy can also decrease the impact of many medical conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension.
