At least 20 million Americans have diabetes and up to a third of them do not know they have it. Unfortunately, residents of Southwestern Pennsylvania are not immune to these startling statistics.
In fact, Southwestern Pennsylvania holds the unenviable distinction of having one of the highest incidence rates of diabetes in the country. That’s why St. Clair Hospital opened the most comprehensive diabetes center in the South Hills. It is specifically designed to help our community deal with this growing health issue. People with diabetes need the qualified expertise of endocrinologists, dietitians and nurse educators to help them manage their condition and understand how it impacts their lives. St. Clair Hospital’s Diabetes Center provides this expertise in a caring, convenient location.
As part of our Empowerment Program, we work with patients and their primary care physicians to provide the comprehensive education and the support patients need to stay healthy and reduce the risk of complications.
Our highly trained staff consults with patients to develop a personalized plan to manage each individual’s unique medical needs.
This customized plan includes:
- Blood Glucose Monitoring
- Insulin Administration
- Diabetes Medications
- Exercise Strategies
- Meal Planning To Suit Individual Lifestyle and Medical Needs
- Sick-Day Management
The St. Clair Diabetes Center offers a highly trained staff with years of experience in diabetes care and management. The St. Clair Hospital Diabetes Center is located in our Village Square Outpatient Center, Suite 202, 2000 Oxford Drive, Bethel Park, adjacent to South Hills Village.
