Featured Clinics

This display highlights the top 10 clinics that helped their adult patients with diabetes meet specific goals for recommended care.

The statewide rate is 46% for all reporting clinics.

This means that for every 100 adult patients with diabetes, 46 met all five goals for recommended care for their diabetes. 

How the clinics compare

Measuring high-quality care for diabetes includes reaching specific goals:

  • Blood pressure is less than 140/90 mmHg
  • Blood sugar (A1c) is less than 8%
  • Taking a statin as needed to manage cholesterol
  • Being tobacco-free
  • Taking an aspirin daily, if appropriate

The featured clinics had rates between 84% and 66% - above the statewide rate of 46% but still showing room to improve.

The MNHealthScores' Featured Clinics list is based on clinic performance for recommended diabetes care for adults.

Quality diabetes care centers on meeting specific treatment goals. When you meet your treatment goals and have your diabetes under control, you are less likely to develop problems such as nerve damage, kidney disease, eye problems, heart disease, and stroke.

recommended Care

  • Blood pressure is less than 140/90 mmHg
  • Blood sugar (A1c) is less than 8 percent
