Our top ranked facilities include Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Hospital, The Monroe Carrell Jr. Childrens Hospital at Vanderbilt, and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. Partnerships with the Nashville Veterans Administration and an ever-expanding affiliate network of community and regional medical systems provide the patient base for Vanderbilt.
