Patients and Visitors go to:

Updated October 15, 2020

With the continued concern regarding the COVID-19 virus, our utmost responsibility as a healthcare system is to keep our patients, employees, volunteers, and visitors safe.

Effective March 11, 2020, active volunteer support across the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, including Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital, The Vanderbilt Clinics, One Hundred Oaks, and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt has been suspended. We are not taking new volunteer applications for any program at this time. A specific reactivation date for the program has yet to determined. However when volunteer activities resume, VUMC Volunteer Services will adopt a phased-in approach beginning with volunteers who were previously trained and are current with all required compliance.

Once volunteers return, there will be training that includes new Covid-19 requirements.
