Long time Scripps Board Member Jerry Rindone and Dr. Athena Philis-Tsimikas of the Scripps Whittier Diabetics Institute toured the construction site today for the new Prebys Cardiovascular Institute in La Jolla.  This new hospital will integrate care for cardiovascular and diabetic patients.  Mr. Rindone has served on the SWDI Board and has been an advocate to improve hospital care for patients admitted to the hospital who also have Type I or Type II diabetes.  Nearly 1/3 of all patients admitted to the hospital today for any reason also have diabetes in addition to the reason they were admitted to the hospital.  Mr. Rindone has locally promoted the “Project Dulce” service available for diabetic patients at the Chula Vista’s Scripps hospital.
