Bozeman Deaconess Diabetes Center has earned National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognition for diabetes care. According to Diabetes Center Medical Director Michael Vlases, MD, “Our Center earned three-year NCQA recognition through our overall high quality of diabetes care. Patients cared for at the Diabetes Center exceed standards for blood glucose control and surveillance for complications including nerve damage, eye damage, kidney damage, and control of cholesterol and control of blood pressure.”

The Diabetes Center is a Bozeman Deaconess Health Group specialty referral clinic. “We are proud to be the first provider group in the State of Montana to earn NCQA recognition,” says Bozeman Deaconess Health Group President James Loeffelholz, MD FACP.

Bozeman Deaconess Diabetes Center also meets national standards as a Diabetes Self-Management Education Program and was awarded continued recognition from the American Diabetes Association. Bozeman Deaconess Diabetes Center provides comprehensive individualized diabetes care plans and services include diabetes self-management education, medical nutrition therapy, glucometer training and monitoring and physician-directed medication starts, titrations and monitoring.
