Convenient women’s health, midwifery and primary care services are right around the corner for Mt. Juliet residents, with new Center for Women’s Health and family care clinics now open in Suite 120 of the 2025 building on North Mt. Juliet Road.

The clinics, which began seeing patients in February, joined the Vanderbilt Children’s After-Hours Clinic Mt. Juliet, which opened in 2013 and is housed in the same building.

The new Center for Women’s Health location, run by Vanderbilt’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB-GYN), adds to the growing list of cities where women can access Vanderbilt Health’s OB-GYN services within their communities. Other clinic locations include Clarksville, Columbia, Franklin, Lawrenceburg, Nashville, Smyrna, Springfield, Spring Hill and Thompson’s Station.

“Vanderbilt offers unique, integrated OB-GYN services to women of all ages. We are now poised to be able to deliver that care closer to where women live in Middle Tennessee,” said Ronald Alvarez, MD, MBA, chair of the Department of OB-GYN.

Primary care and full-scope midwifery services, which include antepartum, postpartum, gynecologic and well-woman care, are offered by the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing Faculty Practice Network. The new location serves as an extension of the West End Women’s Health Center and the Vanderbilt Nurse-Midwives at Melrose to better serve patients. Births will occur on the Medical Center’s main campus.

Location hours, providers and appointment information are as follows:
