Hallmark Health expands Diabetes Education Program

The same high quality care that patients have come to expect at other Hallmark Health locations is now also available at the Hallmark Health Medical Center in Reading. The program is certified by the American Diabetes Association and gives patients practical lifestyle tips and visuals to learn how to better control their diabetes.

Individualized one-on-one appointments and insulin pump education are available now and Group Diabetes Education classes will begin in March. Evening hours are available.

New wireless sensor devices that record 72 hours glucose tracings will also be available at the medical center. This technology is like an EKG reading of a patient’s blood sugar over a three-day period.

Hallmark Health Medical Center, located at 30 New Crossing Road in Reading, offers a convenient location with easy access from Interstates 128 and 93, as well as a one-stop shopping model so patients can achieve all of their healthcare needs at once. The center also has plenty of free parking on site. There is no reason to travel to several different locations when you can get everything done at Hallmark Health Medical Center.

The three-story outpatient facility is one of the largest of its kind in the region and offers the most advanced technology to diagnose and treat medical conditions. The center features imaging services that include X-Ray, CAT Scan, ultrasound, bone densitometry and digital mammography. A full-service physical therapy suite and blood draw station is on site as well.

The Hallmark Health Medical Center also houses a number of medical offices that offer specialty care in areas such as internal medicine and family practice, cardiology, endocrinology, obstetrics and gynecology, podiatry, pediatrics and gastroenterology. Any physician can refer a patient to the center. Physicians do not have to be a member of Hallmark Health to do so.
