This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

UHN OpenLab

The University Health Network (UHN)’s OpenLab has been experimenting with new ways to improve healthcare for complex patients since 2009. OpenLab uses the entire health system itself as its laboratory, bringing together clinicians, patients, researchers, designers, policymakers, and ­lawmakers to tackle pressing issues at the intersection of health and society. OpenLab is currently working on a healthy living project to bring a wildly successful model, started in Kingston, Ontario, for senior independent living and senior-led programming to Toronto.

UHN OpenLab is trusteed by Toronto General and Western Hospital Foundation.
