Virginia Mason is an ideal choice for diabetes care. We are the oldest, largest and most comprehensive diabetes center in the Pacific Northwest. We have been serving patients with diabetes since the early 1920s, when insulin was first discovered. Our Benaroya Diabetes Center is at the forefront of diagnosing, managing and treating diabetes, and providing comprehensive patient education.
The diabetes center was recently recognized by the American Diabetes Association in accordance with national standards for diabetes patient education programs. The diabetes center was first recognized in 1990, and has been recertified every three years.
