Bet little Ava will be glad the open U.S. healthcare system was available when her own country was incapable of caring for her.

Baby in border drama is thriving in Canada


The first few hours of little Ava’s life made big news on both sides of the border.

Ava weighed 2 pounds 4 ounces when she was born June 25, more than three months before her due date.

A shortage of beds for such premature infants, a persistent problem in Southern Ontario, forced authorities to transfer her to Children’s Hospital in Buffalo. But that move didn’t go without a hitch, as an intense storm grounded a helicopter, forcing the neonatal transport team from McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton to transport Ava by ambulance.
