Tri-City Medical Center recognizes the healing process continues after leaving the hospital. That’s why we are home to a wide variety of support groups designated to meet specific needs.
Our community members can always turn to Tri-City Medical Center for their healthcare needs before, during and after hospitalization.
First, You Are Not Alone
There are approximately 750,000 individuals with an ostomy in the United States and this number increases by approximately 65,000 per year. Ostomy surgery saves many lives and returns people to better health and full, productive lives.
We invite you to become a member of our Ostomy Support Group. Start by attending a monthly meeting to witness first hand what full lives your fellow ostomates are living.
The Ostomy Support Group of North San Diego County is a not-for-profit association established to provide mutual aid and rehabilitation to persons who have undergone bowel or bladder ostomy or related surgeries.
Meetings are held at Tri-City Medical Center in Assembly Room 1 at 1:00 pm on the last Friday of each month (except in November when the group will take place on the Friday before Thanksgiving).
