Syosset, North Shore University Hospitals Get Diabetes Joint Commission Certification

The Joint Commission certified both North Shore University Hospital and Syosset Hospital in advanced inpatient diabetes management.

North Shore University Hospital, along with Syosset Hospital, have been re-certified in the area of advanced inpatient diabetes management by the Joint Commission.

NSUH received its first certification in 2014 and Syosset earned the designation in 2015. The two are centers of excellence with Alyson Myers, MD, as program director at NSUH and Anne Marie Hasse as its program coordinator and Syosset’s program is led by Director Sara Shraibman, MD, and Coordinator Meg Diliberto.

The Joint Commission designation in diabetes means that both of these hospitals’ inpatient diabetes programs meet the organization’s high national standards in quality of care and safety.

“These two hospitals’ diabetes programs are committed to excellence, as demonstrated by this re-designation by the Joint Commission,” said Marie Frazzitta, senior director of chronic disease management at Northwell Health.

Glen Cove Hospital, LIJ Medical Center and Plainview Hospital have also received this recognition.
