Message from Dr. Wright Pinson about COVID-19 resources for employees

Colleagues,

Despite the presence of COVID-19 here in our community, we are continuing to take care of all our patients. The preparations we are taking to address the challenges are supplemental to the Medical Center’s regular activities and will serve us well.

I want to express my appreciation to all at VUMC for your many efforts and continued diligence as we face our challenges. We are focused on the welfare of our workforce and our patients.

Please remember that employees, and our patients, who are concerned about COVID-19 symptoms are being encouraged to call a dedicated hotline at (888) 312-0847 to be screened.

I also want to emphasize that MyVUMC and this dedicated website are official sources of institutional information for the COVID-19 outbreak, offering the latest updates. Everyone is responsible to keep up to date and refer to these resources and closely monitor email for updates.

Sincerely,

C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD

Deputy CEO and Chief Health System Officer
