Mac opens Boris Clinic
As a senior citizen, Mountain Cablevision founder Owen Boris had health complications, and dealing with the local health system led to worse problems. He decided that Hamilton needed its own Mayo clinic, and went to work with hospital executives to make it happen. Today, the first phase of the Boris Clinic officially opened at McMaster University Medical Centre.
It feels like a home for Christina Ingrassia, who has been shuttling from one specialist to another since she was 15 and diagnosed with diabetes. “It just becomes overwhelming. It becomes your whole life. You shuffle yourself from place to place, this appointment, that appointment, and all you end up doing is going through reports.”
