How we are keeping safe, together
Thank you! Because of the sacrifices you’ve been making, our community hasn’t been overwhelmed by COVID-19. Staying home, keeping your distance and wearing masks – it is making a difference.
Vanderbilt Health at MNPS Health Care Centers has restarted well visits that were paused or delayed.
Safety during this time is your top concern. As always, it’s ours, too. We have taken a careful approach to restarting services. Here are some of the safety actions we're taking:
Everyone must wear a mask while in our clinics. This includes all patients, visitors, doctors, nurses and staff.
We’re changing public spaces to allow everyone to keep a safe (6 feet) distance. You’ll see chairs spaced apart and limits on the number of people on elevators.
We’re sanitizing rooms between patients and cleaning public areas often.
In our outlying clinics, we are staggering appointments. If we’re unable to room you right away, you may be asked to wait in your car and a nurse will call you when ready.
Telehealth visits may be an option if you and your provider agree it’s right for your care.
The safety precautions we are taking follow (or in some cases exceed) those of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other government agencies. Learn more about Vanderbilt Health’s safety measures here.
At Vanderbilt Health, our patients come first. You always have. You always will. Thank you for your patience with these additional steps and for choosing Vanderbilt Health.
