Toronto Star
In appearance and proportions it resembles a major airport terminal. And that 180-metre-long entrance hall to the new Humber River Hospital — the blue behemoth of a building that's been rising north of Highway 401 at Keele St. — will function like a departures gateway as well. Patients arriving by car will drive along the fronting roadway until they come to the door they need.

Sudbury man walking tall after leg repairment treatment
The Sudbury Star
If Jordan Morrison needed a test of his rebuilt leg, he could probably have found a gentler one than the tactical exercises he's being put through now. "We've been doing ground takedowns," the 20-year-old Naughton native said from Peterborough, where he's enrolled in a course to become a park warden.

"CSM or Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy is caused by arthritis in the spine and it's where arthritic bone spurs and degenerated discs cause pressure on the spinal cord in the neck area. And this is the most common cause of paralysis in the world, related to spinal cord problems," says Dr. Michael Fehlings.
