Four years later, in June of 1983, the clinic was instrumental in establishing the Diabetes Centers of Excellence at what is now Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital. Under our physicians’ guidance and direction, the Centers of Excellence received recognition from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and was the only in-patient facility so recognized in South Texas.
