“TGH, one of eight hospitals that make up Canada’s University Health Network, is also the biggest and most well-funded research organization in the country and the largest transplant center in North America,” the article reads.

The piece notes the hospital’s many “firsts,” including a triple organ transplant (double-lung, liver and pancreas) in 2015 and attributes its leadership in transplantation research and innovation to being the teaching hospital for the University of Toronto.
