With proper treatment, education and support, you can keep your diabetes under control and continue living a strong and healthy life.


You want to live a long and healthy life, and that means understanding how to manage your diabetes as best as possible. When you’re diagnosed with or treated for diabetes in our hospital, we’ll educate you on how to care for yourself once you leave the hospital.

We offer both inpatient and outpatient diabetes care and services. When its time for you to go home, we’ll provide you with guidance and work closely with you, your physician and your family to come up with a plan that fits into your daily routine.

Treatments

Diabetes Inpatient Services

Whether you are newly diagnosed, have had diabetes for years, have been hospitalized recently, are pregnant with diabetes or simply want to learn how to use an insulin pump, we are here for you. While you stay with us we’ll:

  • Determine your blood sugar levels (glycemic control) and help you achieve a desired goal.
  • Teach you basic diabetes survival skills you’ll need for self-management before we discharge you.
  • Talk with you about setting regular appointments and help you transition to outpatient care.
  • Give you and any caregivers the information you need for your care.

Diabetes Outpatient Services

As diabetes care continues to evolve, we’ll help you discover new ways to live a better life with diabetes. Our dedicated team of Certified Diabetes Educators (dietitians and nurses) will teach you tips and techniques for controlling diabetes for a lifetime.

We will also help you get connected to any other specialty doctors that might play an important role in caring for your diabetes, such as ophthalmologists, podiatrists, cardiologists and vascular services.

In order to make sure you’re always as healthy and strong as possible, you’ll want to stay educated on diabetes care. We offer individual sessions as well as group classes in the following topics:

  • Learning basic facts about diabetes
  • Monitoring/understanding blood sugar at home and learning about the A1c test
  • Eating healthy: Planning meals, reading food labels, counting carbohydrates
  • Treating hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
