Top 40 Canadian Research Hospitals Announced
The list of the top 40 Canadian research hospitals has recently been announced by Research Infosource with 7 out of the top ten awards going to hospitals in Ontario. The rankings are based upon overall research income and $ per researcher.
The University Health Network (UHN) in Toronto, Ontario captured the number one spot, with over $302 Million in research income and approximately $440,000 per researcher. Of course, one might interpret this ranking as slightly unfair since the UHN is actually comprised of three of Canada’s top hospitals: The Ontario Cancer Institute, Toronto General Research Institute and Toronto Western Research Institute.
Not surprisingly, McGill’s University Health Center came in second with $176 Million in research income, with the Hospital for Sick Children coming in slightly behind at $171 Million in research income to capture third place.
Of note were two British Columbia hospitals in fifth and sixth place and Newfoundland’s Eastern Health Regional Health
Authority coming in dead last in 40th place with just $6 Million in research income.
