Acute Inpatient Program
There may come a time when you will be a patient in a Lee Memorial Health System hospital. If you are hospitalized, we have diabetes educators that may become an integral part of your care team. Diabetes Educators are at all hospital facilities: Gulf Coast Medical Center, Lee Memorial Hospital, Cape Coral Hospital, Health Park Medical Center, Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida, and The Rehabilitation Hospital.
If ordered by your physician, Lee Diabetes Care educators will visit you in the hospital to discuss your educational needs and any identified barriers to good diabetes self-management at home.
The Diabetes Educators will work closely with you and your physician to develop an individual education plan. After an initial education assessment, the educators are trained to prioritize the education objectives in order to optimize your diabetes self-management, prevent readmissions and promote a timely discharge.
Our diabetes educators work closely with the hospital Case Manager to ensure that you have a Primary Care Physician and any additional needed resources to promote successful ongoing diabetes care.Meet our Adult Endocrinologists
