The BD Diabetes Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and the Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrine Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Center at Overlook Medical Center offer comprehensive services for children and adolescents with diabetes and endocrine disorders from initial diagnosis through young adulthood.
As a part of Atlantic Health System Children's Health, physician services are provided through Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children’s Hospital.
At the BD Diabetes Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center, we help our patients minimize long-term diabetes complications through optimal control of blood sugars. We provide specialized diabetes services, including finger-stick hemoglobin A1C testing, diagnostic continuous glucose monitoring and insulin pump therapy.
In addition to treating children with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, our center also cares for young patients with less common forms of the condition, including maturity onset diabetes of youth (MODY), cystic fibrosis diabetes and chemotherapy-induced diabetes. What’s more, our Family-Focused High Risk Diabetes Intervention Program helps families of children and adolescents who are having difficulty managing their diabetes.
When it comes to optimizing blood sugars and educating patients on self-care, we believe in a team approach. Our center’s multidisciplinary staff is comprised of board-certified pediatric endocrinologists who are experienced in diabetes management, and nurses, nurse practitioners and dietitians who are certified diabetes educators. A social worker and family therapist are also on hand to provide support for our patients and their families.
Once our patients reach adulthood, we help transition their diabetes management to the Adult Diabetes and Endocrine Institute at Morristown Medical Center.
At the Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrine Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Center at Overlook Medical Center, our skilled staff of pediatric endocrinologists and nurse practitioners care for children and adolescents with growth disorders, early and delayed puberty, calcium and bone disorders, and diseases of the thyroid, adrenal or pituitary gland.
We offer an on-site Pediatric Endocrine Testing Center and a long-term endocrine follow-up program for pediatric cancer survivors. Our center is also designated by the state for the management of newborn infants with congenital hypothyroidism and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
