Hoag Diabetes Care Ranked #29 in the Nation by U.S. News & World Report

Categories: News

U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals rankings are out, and Hoag is proud to be the highest ranked Orange County hospital for Diabetes & Endocrinology. This highly-regarded recognition is made possible by Hoag’s team of endocrinologists, registered nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, registered dietitians, educators, and health & wellness coaches. Our diabetes experts serve on national committees and are involved in pioneering clinical trials, which make Hoag a respected diabetes prevention and treatment innovator.

The Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center opened 10 years ago with a promise to the community to provide dedicated, advanced care in a welcoming environment. Today, Hoag continues to honor that commitment by delivering trusted, tested and new methods of helping patients take control of their diabetes care with inpatient and outpatient locations throughout Orange County.

The Center maintains a strong clinical and psychosocial research program with a primary objective of improving the lives of people with diabetes. Patients have access to cutting-edge technology, such as wearable sensors and automated insulin delivery systems that simplify diabetes care, as well as the opportunity to participate in the latest trials and benefit from donor supported diabetes community programs that are exclusive to Hoag.

“With new technologies, we can partner with our patients to help identify the best ways to meet their long-term treatment goals,” said Dr. Ahn. “We are committed to innovating because we see firsthand how these technological advances change the way we deliver care and improve the quality of life for our patients.”

Hoag’s diabetes nursing team even provides bedside assessments in our hospitals to educate and advocate for our patients, ensuring that clinical teams are working together to optimally manage blood sugar, which in turn improves recovery time and shortens hospital stays.

From receiving young adults transitioning from pediatric care to counseling pregnant mothers with gestational diabetes, Hoag offers a variety of services and resources for diabetes patients, including education classes, support groups and cooking classes.
