The University Health Network has grown out of a series of mergers between our current hospitals, as we have adjusted and change to accommodate our growing and changing patient community in and around the GTA.
In 1986, the Toronto Western Hospital merged with the Toronto General Hospital becoming, respectively, the Toronto Western Division and the Toronto General Division of The Toronto Hospital. On January 1, 1998, the Toronto Hospital was amalgamated with the Ontario Cancer Institute/Princess Margaret Hospital, and in April 1999, the name was officially changed to the University Health Network.
On July 1, 2011, UHN integrated with the Toronto Rehab Institute, a move which has physically expanded us to eight locations around the city, and allows us to better serve our patients by bringing together acute hospital care with the rehabilitation care that so frequently follows a hospital stay.
On January 1, 2016, UHN integrated with the Michener Institute, now called the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. This new relationship is the first integration of a health care organization and an educational institution, in Canada. Our integration offers a wonderful opportunity for students in a variety of health professions, just as it offers UHN and all the hospitals which take part in the Michener program, the ability to work with students who will be the future of healthcare in this province.
Each of our hospital sites has its own unique history. Learn more about our sites and how they grew to become a part of UHN.
