County law directs the Department of Health Services to hold two public health hearings each year. A hearing was held this spring in Hauppauge. The purpose of these hearings is to obtain input from county residents as to the quality of the health care delivery system and how it services their needs. Residents who are unable to attend the hearing and wish to submit testimony are encouraged to send written testimony to the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, Attention: Grace Kelly-McGovern, 3500 Sunrise Highway, Suite 124, P.O. Box 9006, Great River, NY 11739-9006. Written testimony will be accepted until November 15, 2012.
