Sept. 11 treatment facility opens in Islandia
Dozens were on hand Thursday for the official opening of Stony Brook University?s newest treatment center for Sept. 11 first responders.
The Islandia treatment facility is the third World Trade Center Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program Center on Long Island.
The World Trade Center treatment program is a federally funded program with an $8 million annual budget. Each year, the facilities see about 5,000 Long Island residents with about 30 new patients seeking help there every month.
The other World Trade Center treatment facilities are in East Meadow and Hicksville.
