A Very Important Part of Ostomy Association of Metro Denver 

is the Visitation Program

The Denver Chapter will send a certified visitor to an ostomy patient in the hospital or home pre-operatively and/or post-operatively.  We attempt to match visitors to patients by type of surgery, age, sex, marital status, and lifestyle.
