Toronto East Network (TEN)

The Toronto East Network (TEN) is a group of hospitals in the northeast of Toronto including: Toronto East General, Southlake Regional, North York General, Scarborough, Markham-Stouffville, Lakeridge Health Corporation, and the York Central.

The Chiefs of Medicine from the TEN collaborate on topics of shared interest, including integrated approaches to medical education through the TEN Medicine Outcomes Alliance, as well as best practices, communication, information technology approaches and more.
