Comprehensive Diabetes Care

Diabetes

Staying healthy with diabetes requires special care: paying attention at meals to the food and portions on your plate; being active; checking blood sugar levels; and taking medications as prescribed. Together, these individual steps can make a major difference for people who are diagnosed with diabetes.

A team of specialists at the outpatient Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Care at Rush Oak Park Hospital looks out for patients with diabetes, walking you through these changes, answering questions and easing concerns. They provide a blanket of care, rooted in patient education, to stem confusion and prevent complications.

Because of this comprehensive approach to helping you stay healthy and active at home, the Center's outpatient education program is Recognized by the American Diabetes Association*. For people with diabetes who require inpatient hospital services, Rush Oak Park Hospital is one of an elite group of hospitals in the nation to have earned the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval™ for Inpatient Diabetes care.
