7th floor of Medical Center East
MCE call room: One of two resident call rooms. While this call room is a bit on the cozier side, it is on the Surgical Stepdown Floor, which is a short walk to the SICU and close to the main elevators which take you right to the ER. Prime spot for residents to catch a couple hours of rest on a busy night of Face call.
Resident Room: One of our two resident rooms. This room serves as the main resident work room during the day for residents. There is a connecting room which has a bed and the private bathroom which also has shower facilities.
Voice Center: Our main hallway leading up to the Laryngology clinics. On the walls you can see records and pictures donated by many musicians and other public figures throughout the years, a function of our Laryngology group being located in Music City, home to many names in Country music in particular.
