Welcome to the Suffolk County Ostomy Association of New York. We are an ostomy group established to assist with the continued rehabilitation of ostomy patients by group interaction and educational guidance from the associations’ appointed medial advisors. This group is open to anyone who has an ostomy, is a pre-ostomy candidate, or is a family member or friend of an ostomate. Interested medical professionals are also welcome. Available resources include emotional support, information, and literature. Telephone support is available before and after surgery.
We meet monthly at the Longwood Library in Middle Island N.Y. Meetings are held on the second Sunday of the month from 2–4 PM. There are no meetings in July or August. There is ample parking available.
