University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
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 new patient and surgical tower will improve patient and clinic workflows and provide 80 new patient beds. All inpatient rooms will be built as private rooms with single washrooms. Every room will have large windows, providing natural light, a monitor for patient information as well as entertainment, enough outlets for patient and clinical needs and ample space for multiple visitors.
There will also be 20 new state-of-the-art Operating Rooms (ORs) and the tower will be positioned for future pandemics and emergent needs, ensuring UHN is equipped to deliver tomorrow's care.
While all construction will be maintained on UHN property, road closures, dust and some noise are to be expected and may impact the hospital's neighbours.
All construction will be conducted in compliance with Chapter 591 City of Toronto Municipal Code for Noise and Lights will meet jurisdiction requirements.
An engineering firm will also monitor vibration at regular intervals throughout shoring and excavation.
Since March 2021, UHN has engaged with Toronto Western Hospital's surrounding community from Kensington Market to build awareness of this project and the need for enhanced services within the area.
UHN continues to engage with the community, alongside the local Councillor's office (Ward 11 University – Rosedale Councillor Dianne Saxe) and is inspired and energized by the community support received so far. We look forward to continuing this work to build a healthier community – and A Healthier World.
