The Department of Microbiology is a collaborative laboratory operation between Sinai Health Systems and the University Health Network. We are recognized as a center of excellence and have become a prime reference center for both hospital and private sector laboratories. We offer state-of-the-art diagnostics, methods development, research, and education.
As an innovation driven team, we are able to offer the full range of high quality microbiology services, from routine cultures and susceptibility testing to molecular diagnostic testing. New assays are continually being tested or developed by our medical and scientific staff in response to clinical and research needs.
The Department provides diagnostic services to Mount Sinai Hospital and the three hospital sites of University Health Network, Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital and Toronto Rehabilitation Institute. In addition, the department provides diagnostic services to Baycrest Center for Geriatric Care, Bridgepoint Hospital, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto Grace Health Centre, and Trillium Gift of Life Network.
