  CHANGE IS HARD!!  It is with great sadness that we announce the departure of Dr. Melissa Cabellon from Village Pediatrics & Internal Medicine.  She has been a wonderful colleague and asset to our practice and we will miss her deeply!  Her efforts have helped transform VP into a practice that provides medical care for the whole family.  We are actively recruiting another dual certified med/Pediatric physician to replace her and trust this will be a smooth transition.  In the interim, a certified Physician Assistant will be here to provide your care.  Dr. Cabellon’s last day will be June 9th.  We hope that you will stop by that afternoon between 3pm and 5pm for cake & ice cream and to say good bye!

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CHILD’S WELL EXAM

Well Child Exam

Village Pediatrics becomes a Vaccine Ambassador

8687335202_bee823ef0c_z“Is your child a Vaccine Ambassador?”  You may be asked this question at your next clinic visit.   Our clinic has been selected as one of 10-pediatric healthcare settings in North Carolina to pilot an innovative new program to bring vaccines to children living in areas of the world without this basic healthcare service.  Each year, over 1.5 million children die due to vaccine–preventable diseases (VPDs), most reside in the developing world.  Existing global immunization programs are not able to vaccinate all these children without our help.

By becoming a Vaccine Ambassador, you can join our clinic’s efforts to ensure that all children have access to lifesaving vaccines.  As a Vaccine Ambassador, a donation of $2 or your chosen amount, will  be collected at each visit.  Your donation will purchase vaccines and immunization services for a child in need.  Therefore every time your child receives health care at our clinic, another child in the world benefits too.

Opportunity starts with good health and vaccines are one of the most cost-effective healthcare measures available so that every child has a chance to grow, play, learn, and laugh.  Give the best gift one parent can give another, a healthy start at life for their child.

Vaccine Ambassadors, LLC under the Fund for Children and Youth, a 501 (c)3.  For more information please visit http://vaccineambassadors.org -Photo/PAHO

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) announced that Village Pediatrics of Chapel Hill has received Recognition from the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term relationship.

Research shows that medical homes can lead to high quality and lower costs, and improve patients’ and providers’ reported experiences of care. The PCMH identifies practices that promote partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, instead of treating patient care as sum of several episodic office visits. Medical home practices demonstrate the benchmarks of patient-centered care, including open scheduling, expanded hours and appropriate use of proven health information systems.

Welcome To Your Medical Home

Village Pediatrics is committed to providing a highly accessible primary care pediatrician to children ages 0-21 in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, and even as far away as Burlington and Raleigh.  We use the efficiency of our Electronic Medical Records (EMR), and online Patient Health Record (PHR), to provide the old-fashioned doctor-patient relationship our staff members grew up with.

Our 4 board certified pediatricians and staff are dedicated to the health of your family and the health of our community.  Our triage team is comprised of 4 registered nurses lead by Maria, our Care Coordinator who also completes referrals. We are on call and available via our patient portal 24/7/365.  Give us a call or drop by & meet us!  You can even like Village Pediatrics on Facebook!  For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and of course by cash or check.  We accept Blue Cross Blue Shield (including Blue Value), State Health Plan, NC Health Choice, United, Cigna, Aetna, Medcost, Wellpath, Humana, foreign travelers insurance, and many, many others.

Abundant free parking is available right in front of our practice, as well as in the parking garage. We are on the NS and V Chapel Hill Transit bus routes.

What is a Medical Home?

The mission of Village Pediatrics is to provide the highest standard of acute and preventative medicine to all children and adolescents by applying the American Academy of Pediatrics Medical Home Philosophy to all children, of all ages, and all demographics. The AAP defines a medical home as primary care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective.

At Village Pediatrics, we believe that every child deserves a medical home.  To accomplish our goal, we combine state of the art electronic medical records, online patient access, a large panel of insurance companies, and open access scheduling to provide you with the high quality, accessible medical care you and your family deserve.

A sick child is far more than a medical file. Children are sisters, brothers, and grandchildren. They are students, athletes, church members and an integral part of the village that we all live in. It takes a village isn’t just a motto. It is our philosophy. It has always been my philosophy, and it is wonderful to be working at Village Pediatrics with others who share that commitment. -Maria Mekeel, RN
