Today's Globe: Thompson cancer, stem cell vote, mentally retarded case, Winchester Hospital, Walter Reed neglect
Potential presidential candidate Fred Thompson, known to millions of "Law & Order" viewers as a gruff district attorney, disclosed yesterday that he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer, nearly three years ago.
A stubborn Senate voted yesterday to ease restrictions on federally funded embryonic stem cell research, ignoring President Bush's threat of a second veto on legislation designed to lead to new medical treatments.
A federal magistrate judge has found that the state has failed to provide adequate treatment and services for some 800 mentally retarded people in nursing homes, repeatedly violating a settlement agreement it made seven years ago to settle a class-action lawsuit.
Responding to residents' concerns, Winchester Hospital has scaled back a plan to build a new healthcare complex on Washington Street.
Money woes and Pentagon neglect are to blame for shoddy outpatient conditions and bureaucratic delays at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, an independent review has concluded.
