UHN’s Toronto Western Hospital was among the first hospitals in Canada to offer comprehensive and specialized geriatric services. Since then, the Division of Geriatrics has expanded to provide a comprehensive range of geriatric services across all of UHN’s four hospital sites. The Division’s primary goal is to provide expert consultations to older patients hospitalized at UHN to help them recover more quickly and improve their overall chances of going home. While providing exemplary in-hospital care, the team has also developed approaches to better manage the challenges that can lead to older adults being hospitalized in the first place, helping them to avoid hospital visits altogether.
