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.

Social workers are key members of all UHN programs and services. They are experts regarding the social determinants of health and well-being and enable people to access their right to care, to benefit from care and to thrive in their lives.
Social workers complete psycho-social assessments that consider each individual in their unique circumstances and environment including their supports, both formal and informal. A social worker helps patients, families and caregivers cope with the impact of an illness or hospitalization from an emotional, financial and practical perspective. They provide support and counselling and can help facilitate access to community services. Social workers also help foster communication among patients, families, caregivers and staff so that patient wishes and needs are heard.
To speak with a social worker a patient, family member, or significant other can ask any member of the health care team to make a referral. Social workers are available to assist patients, and their families, extended families and others who play a supportive role in a patient's life.
UHN is a work place where you will enjoy the unique challenges of your chosen field, create and engage in best practices, and you will be at the heart of facilities bringing the world new health care innovations.
