PARIS, ILL. — Reid Sutton has received national recognition for providing quality diabetes care to his patients.

Sutton has been an internal medicine physician at Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center in Paris, Ill., for the past 35 years.

This national recognition of Sutton was made by the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the American Diabetes Association Diabetes Physician Recognition Program.

The Diabetes Physician Recognition Program is designed to improve the quality of care that patients with diabetes receive by recognizing physicians who deliver quality diabetes care and motivate other physicians to document and improve their delivery of care.

To receive recognition that is valid for three years, Sutton submitted data that demonstrated performance that meets the program’s key diabetes care measures. These measures include eye exams, blood pressure tests, nutrition therapy and patient satisfaction.

When people with diabetes receive quality care as outlined by these measures, they are less likely to suffer complications such as heart attacks, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and amputations.

Sutton is one of three physicians at PCH/FMC recognized by the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program. Others are Leland Phipps and M. Bert Akerman.

In addition to being nationally recognized for his diabetes care, Sutton recently received the 2012 Rural Physician of Excellence Award. Presented by the Illinois Rural Health Association, the award recognizes a physician’s dedicated service toward improving healthcare in rural communities.
