Hendersonville Pediatrics, P.A. is a private, general community pediatric practice with two offices serving families of Henderson, Transylvania and surrounding counties. The practice was founded in 1955 by Dr. Fletcher Raiford, M.D., the first pediatrician to practice in this mountain community 30 miles south of Asheville, NC and 60 miles from Greenville, SC. Over the years, Hendersonville Pediatrics has grown along with the population and development of the region. The practice now has 10 pediatricians and one physician assistant.
We have approximately 12,000 active patients and see approximately 41,000 patient encounters each year. Our practice is quite diverse with large percentages of commercially insured and Medicaid patients. The practice is a significant influencer in the region on behalf of healthy children and families. The practice also has space agreements with other practitioners including a registered dietician and two pediatric Ph.D. psychologists who deliver highly integrative care to patients in need of behavioral health treatment. The practice is a recognized top-tier performer by major payers, local health systems, and industry agencies for consistently high quality outcomes and effective quality improvement initiatives. Also, our doctors enjoy multiple years of recognition as best pediatricians in our region by community publications.
Our leadership team is made up of our practice manager, two front office supervisors, a clinical support staff supervisor, in-house lab manager, business office manager and quality improvement coordinator. This group is responsible for day- to-day running of the practice under the direction of our physician board of owners.
The goal of our leadership team is to ensure that physicians can focus their full energy and attention to rendering excellent patient care. We have well-trained support staff, state-of-the-art equipment, remodeled interiors, and stable and user-friendly information technologies that include Office Practicum, our pediatric-specific electronic health record and clinical information system.
