STRAUS--Oscar S. The Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center community mourns the passing of Oscar S. Straus II, who along with his wife, Joan has been a devoted friend and benefactor. Oscar and Joan created the New Yorkers for Brookhaven, a gathering of predominately summer residents from the Bellport community, to provide support to the Medical Center with a primary focus on cardiology. We offer our heartfelt condolences and sympathy to Joan and the family.
