Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen (SDCC)
For more than 86 years, the Steno Diabetes Center has been run as a hospital, specializing in the treatment, research, prevention of diabetes and the education of healthcare professionals in diabetes. The ambition is to offer best treatment and prevention for the benefit of all citizens with diabetes in the Capital Region.
The ambition of SDCC encompasses these three objectives:
Become one of the best treatment options globally for people with diabetes in a coherent health care system
Become one of the world's leading clinical diabetes research environments
That the Capital Region and Greater Copenhagen become a global beacon in innovative diabetes education.
SDCC has been established following a $ 2.95 billion donation from the Novo Nordisk Foundation, which, in addition to the many joint activities in the region, also makes it possible to build entirely new physical settings in the form of a new diabetes center where up to 14,000 people with diabetes can be treated. This center will be completed by 2020 and will be erected next to Herlev Hospital.
Until the new center is completed, treatment will continue on Niels Steensens Vej in Gentofte.See more
