HSN is planning to build a facility dedicated entirely to childhood health care in the Northeast.

Health Sciences North says 3,500 children travel to Toronto every year for specialized care. The facility is designed so parents don’t have to drive or fly to larger cities, saving money and making the journey safer.

The Northeast Health Centre for Kids is backing HSN in the plan’s proposal. The facility is in the very early stages of design and conception according to HSN and NEO Kids.
