The Division of Children’s Primary Care is dedicated to providing comprehensive well-child and acute care for infants through age 21. We provide a wealth of services for our patients, including admitting privileges at Duke and Durham Regional Hospitals, adolescent specialty care, on-site mental health services, a nurse advice line, prenatal visits, lactation services, and sports medicine. Our wellness services include immunizations and routine physical examinations, including those required for school, competitive athletics, and camp.
Annually, we serve more than 19,000 patients during more than 50,000 visits. We see patients from birth up to age 21. We have a diverse race and ethnic patient profile: 41% are Caucasian, 37% are African-American, 5% are Latino, 4% are Asian, and the remainder are either unspecified or other. Over half of our patients are five years old and under, 54.6%. The next largest age group, from 6-12 years, is 27.4% of our patients. Adolescents through age 18 comprise 16.6% by age, with only 1.4% between the ages of 19 and 21.
