If you or someone you know has diabetes, you are probably looking for the best ways to manage the disease in order to maintain the highest quality of life possible. At the Middlesex Hospital Center for Chronic Care Management, we’ve got the resources to put you on the best possible track for maintaining the quality of life you deserve.
Here in Connecticut, our Diabetes Care Management Program is a major resource for primary care providers, diabetic patients, and the community as a whole. The program includes information, assistance, and ongoing support for participants to reach their diabetes self-management goals. Certified Diabetes Educators provide problem solving strategies and skills to help patients improve their confidence and ability to make healthy life-style changes.
Through the Middlesex Multispecialty Group, located in the same building as our Center for Chronic Care Management, we offer board-certified physicians and a support staff experienced in diabetes care.
We also offer a number of programs and support groups to help patients maintain a positive outlook and provide up-to-date information about their disease.
Programs that help, support groups that care.
Middlesex Hospital's Diabetes Support Group provides a forum where community members and their families can obtain both information and support in their efforts towards successfully living with and managing diabetes.
For children at risk because of excess weight problems, there is our Fit For Kids program. The program connects children with a dietitian care manager who works with the child and family to teach essential tools and set goals that help families live a healthy and active lifestyle. While not a diet or weight loss program, Fit for Kids teaches healthy eating and exercise habits. Get more information on our diabetes management programs here.

Middlesex Hospital is proud to be one of the first hospitals in Connecticut to voluntarily participate in major quality programs conducted by several government and healthcare industry organizations.
The foremost quality program in which we participate is called "Core Measures." These quality measures were developed by The Joint Commission — the nation’s foremost accrediting body in health care — and based on quality indicators from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Adherence to Core Measures has been shown to improve patient outcomes dramatically.
