Vanderbilt Health Belle Meade, a 50,000-square-foot outpatient facility that offers additional space for urology, orthopaedic and oncology services, along with cancer infusion therapy, opens Jan. 18.
The facility, located at 6002 Highway 100 in Nashville near the Highway 70 and Highway 100 split, includes 18 exam rooms; seven operating suites for orthopaedics and urological surgeries; pre- and post-operative areas; a cancer clinic and an infusion area with nine infusion stations and two procedure rooms; along with space for an orthopaedic clinic and occupational therapy.
The facility, designed by Blair + Mui Dowd Architects of New York and constructed by Messer Construction Company, also includes support areas that provide imaging, laboratory and pharmacy services.
“Our commitment is to meet the needs of our patients where they are. This new multi-specialty facility was designed to provide an array of services across several medical specialties and will provide convenient, state-of-the-art care closer to where people of Southwest Davidson County live and work,” said Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Deputy CEO and Chief Health System Officer for VUMC.
Vanderbilt Health Belle Meade offers the type of care that is expected from VUMC, said John Brock III, MD, Senior Vice President of Pediatric Surgical Services, Monroe Carell Jr. Professor and Surgeon-in-Chief Emeritus.
“Vanderbilt Health is recognized for providing quality care. Our patients expect that from us. But convenience and ease of receiving those services matters just as much,” he said. “We understand that our patients are busy, and we hope offering more accessible surgical and specialty care will make their lives easier.”
Tom Nantais, executive vice president for Adult Ambulatory Operations, said that like the many walk-in clinics already offered by Vanderbilt Health, Vanderbilt Health Belle Meade is a convenient option for those seeking specialty and outpatient care closer to home.
“We are excited to continue providing outstanding care to this area of Davidson County because so many patients seek care closer to home. Residents in this area have enjoyed our convenient care options with Vanderbilt Health Walk-in Clinic; this new location expands our offerings in the area to specialty care and outpatient surgery, and creates more convenient access to the care continuum for our patients.”
