    September 27, 2013

    As The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) commences its assessment and deeper discussions with our stakeholders on the merits of a possible merger with Rouge Valley Health System (RVHS), I have been approached by many who have enquired as to whether or not this is a predetermined exercise.
