Diabetes and Endocrinology
Diabetes and endocrinology services focus on the diagnosis, treatment and long-term care needs of people living with diabetes and hormonal disorders. We help you to understand your condition and apply groundbreaking research and education to prevent further illness and complications.
Endocrinology physicians, nurses and staff give a personal approach to care. Each treatment program is tailored to your individual needs. Medical teams work closely with physicians and surgeons of many medical specialties to coordinate your care and treatment. Every step of the way, your referring physician is part of the team and also helps us to coordinate your care.

The Diabetes Center
The Diabetes Center is a regional resource for diabetes diagnosis, education and treatment. Physicians, nurses and staff provide diabetes care for more than 2,000 adult patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes including those with pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and polycystic ovary syndrome.
The center focuses on helping patients change their lifestyle to promote better health. Medical specialists apply the latest medications and technologies to treat or prevent diabetes. The center offers a full range of diabetes care, one-on-one lifestyle counseling, blood sugar monitoring, instruction and insulin-injection training. Group diabetes education classes and an educational resource room help patients to learn more about their diabetes.
Outpatient and inpatient diabetes care is offered including free educational diabetes programs for patients and their families. The center is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for diabetes education.
Advances in diabetes treatment
Clinicians have extensive experience with insulin pumps and continuous glucose-monitoring devices. In 1979, our physicians developed the world's first insulin pump, a milestone for diabetes treatment.
More recently, endocrinologists led the first pediatric study of an automatic insulin delivery device known as the artificial pancreas. This device is the size of a pager and includes a sensor that manages sugar levels continuously. In addition, endocrinologists are now studying methods to prevent and treat this form of the disease using immunotherapy. A team of physicians with many medical specialties guides each patient through diabetes management using the latest technologies available. The Center also offers patients on-site A1c testing.
The Inpatient Diabetes Management Team rounds daily at the hospital monitoring patients with high blood sugar to help manage and control their blood sugar levels.This insulin infusion protocol is now used by many hospitals to achieve glucose control in critical care units. The Glucometrics Web site developed by the inpatient diabetes management team, is used by hundreds of hospitals to help measure and improve the quality of their inpatient glucose control.
