as of Sunday 3/22/2020:

 The well-being of our patients at Beacon Pediatrics is our utmost concern during this challenging time.  We are taking measures to protect all of our patients as well as our staff.  We are updating things starting Monday, March 23rd as noted below.  

 Our office hours have changed and we will NOT be offering walk-in visits during this world wide crisis.  Our updated hours are as follows:

Monday to Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm

Saturday 8 am to 10am

Sunday closed 

All visits will be by appointment only.  Scheduled sick visits are readily available.

 Your child’s safety is our priority.  We want to ensure our well children stay well and we want to continue to provide care for our children that are sick.  To that end we have instituted the following in our office:

1.     Separate entrances and areas of the office for well and sick children.

2.     Staff and providers are either working in the well area or the sick area….not shifting back and forth.

3.     All rooms are being cleaned thoroughly between patients. No toys are in the exam rooms. 

4.     There will be no waiting room – you will be greeted at the door and escorted directly to an exam room. 

5.     All children and caregivers are being screened prior to entering our office to ensure they are seen in the appropriate area of the office.

6.     We ask that the child and only 1 caregiver attend the appointment if possible.

 We encourage our families to continue to have your child receive their appropriate well child care and stay up to date on their vaccinations; this especially applies to the children less than 2 years and the 4 year olds.

We are able to provide many of our patients care through telehealth services (with audio and video capabilities) with our providers.  A telehealth visit is just like “Facetime” or “Skype” but with our provider and in a HIPAA compliant secure connection.  Our staff may offer that as an option for medication checks, some followup visits and some sick visits.   If you would like to schedule a visit via telehealth, please call our office at (302) 645-8212.  If that visit is needed outside our current office hours, please ask the answering service for a “Telehealth” visit.

 Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make changes rapidly during this ever evolving COVID 19 pandemic.    Remember that social distancing, staying home if you are sick and good hand hygiene are critical during this time.  As always, Beacon Pediatrics wants to ensure the safest environment and best care for you and your family.

Reach Out and Read
Reach Out and Read Literacy Program Introduced at Beacon Pediatrics Rehoboth Beach, DE, 2/16/2016- Getting books from the doctor will soon be a routine part of regular pediatric checkups at Beacon Pediatrics, as doctors and nurses welcome the Reach Out and Read program to the practice. As of February 16, 2016, Beacon Pediatrics is joining more than 5,000 program sites nationwide that are preparing America's youngest children to succeed in school. Beacon Pediatrics will be utilizing the Reach Out and Read's three-part model to promote early literacy and school readiness. This includes: 1. Giving every child 6 months through 5 years old a new, developmentally- appropriate children's book to take home and keep. 2. In the exam room, speaking with parents about the importance of reading aloud to their young children every day, and offering age-appropriate tips and encouragement. 3. In the waiting room, having displays, information, and books to create a literacy-rich environment. In the future we may incorporate volunteers to read to children in the waiting room, thus modeling for parents the pleasures and techniques of reading aloud. The end goal of Reach Out and Read is to prepare all children to enter kindergarten ready to read, learn, and succeed. Reach Out and Read is a proven intervention that delivers results, and is supported by at least 15 independent, published research studies. During the preschool years, children served by Reach Out and Read score three to six months ahead of their non-Reach Out and Read peers on vocabulary tests. These foundational language skills help start children on a path of success when they enter school. The Reach Out and Read model is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. This year, Reach Out and Read's 20,000 volunteer medical providers will distribute 6.5 million new books to 4 million children in all 50 states. We at Beacon Pediatrics are excited to start this program at our practice. Through a generous donation from Cathy Haut, PNP and the support of the Beebe Medical Foundation, we have been able to launch this program. We are delighted to have this opportunity to support our patients and our community. Going forward, we will be depending upon your generous support; all monetary gifts are tax deductible and will be channeled through Beebe Medical Foundation.
