affects an estimated 21 million people nationwide. It is a chronic
disease characterized by high blood sugar caused when the body is unable
to produce or properly use the hormone insulin, which is needed to
convert sugars, starches, and other foods into energy. At St.Vincent,
our goal in diabetes care is to help people achieve the optimal balance
they need to manage their condition and feel the best they can to live
an active, healthy lifestyle.
We have expanded the Fidler Medical Pavilion in Winchester to include
housing for a 12-bay Dialysis Center. The Center is an 18,000-sq. ft
addition. The Dialysis Center is managed and operated by Ball Memorial Hospital.
