  Diabetes Education
St. James Mercy Hospital

Diabetes—it can be a scary word, but if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, help is available at St. James Mercy Hospital (SJMH). SJMH offers diabetes education and support programs to meet the health care needs in our community.

The Diabetes Self-Management Program is designed to help individuals and their families learn how to better manage their disease and lead a better quality of life. The program includes:

  • Individual counseling
  • FREE group classes
  • Continuous Glucose Monitoring screenings
  • Insulin Pump starts and maintenance
  • Transportation assistance for appointments/classes if needed
  • Ongoing collaboration with the patient’s primary care physician

In 2015, Noyes Health (Dansville, NY) began collaborating with St. James Mercy Hospital to provide Diabetes Self-Management services. Local patients can continue to access Diabetes services at SJMH in Hornell, working with Bonnie Button-Blair, Registered Nurse, Certified Diabetes Educator (RN, CDE). She joined Noyes Health and now serves patients at both hospitals.

The program, based at Noyes Memorial Hospital and offered at St. James Mercy Hospital, is staffed by Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE), and is recognized by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Managing diabetes is a long-term commitment, and we are delighted to be able to continue providing this service to patients in Hornell.

For more information call (585) 335-4355 or (585) 335-4284.
