About Us

At Scarborough Health Network (SHN), caring for you and your family is not just our job, it is our privilege.

Working with our many community and government partners, patients, staff, physicians, volunteers, and donors, we are transforming patient care and outcomes today, and charting a new course to create a healthier tomorrow.

Across our three hospitals and several community-based satellite sites, our programs and services are designed for the specific needs of the Scarborough community. We offer full-service emergency departments; diagnostic, surgery, rehabilitation, and geriatric care; as well as advanced birthing centres for moms, newborns, and growing families. We are leaders and partners in specialty mental health, cancer, and kids’ care.

Home to leading minds, our medical expertise and compassionate care are accessed from well beyond our borders. We have Ontario’s largest regional nephrology program and regional community-based cardiovascular rehabilitation service. We are the designated cardiac centre for the Central East region of Ontario, and our cardio-oncology clinic is an internationally recognized centre of excellence.

We are proud to be a community-affiliated teaching site for the University of Toronto, in addition to supporting the development of the future Scarborough Academy for Medicine and Integrated Health with the University of Toronto Scarborough. As a member of the Toronto Academic Science Health Network and partner with other universities and colleges, we are committed to helping to train the next generation of healthcare professionals.
