Diabetes Care

Notice: gradual resumption of elective surgeries and non-urgent outpatient services.

North York General Hospital offers two unique diabetes centres where we work with patients and their families to provide education and support:

  • the Diabetes Education Centre (DEC); and
  • the Centre for Complex Diabetes Care (CCDC)

Both of our centres offer a supportive, caring environment where patients learn about strategies to manage their diabetes. We provide education and encouragement to patients, families and caregivers with the goal of working together to achieve the best possible health outcomes. A referral from a primary care provider (PCP) is required for both the DEC and the CCDC.

We are here for you!

Managing diabetes is not always easy, but we are here to help. We offer three different programs for our patients and families. Please read the information below to see which centre best fits your needs:
