For the past six years,  HSN CEO Dr. Denis Roy has been a strong advocate for health care change in Greater Sudbury and northeastern Ontario. Those efforts have been recognized.

Dr. Roy is among the recipients of this year's Community Builders Awards. Dr. Roy received the award in the Health Care Category. Since he arrived in 2010, Dr. Roy has led HSN's evolution into a full-fledged academic health sciences centre. During his tenure, HSN has created a research institute, and transformed the former Memorial Hospital site into the Sudbury Outpatient Centre, with a focus on community-based, patient-centre care for the management of chronic disease. Congratulations to Dr. Denis Roy for being named a Community Builder.
