Vanderbilt Valet’s services now available to patients, families

Patients and their families are now welcome to use Vanderbilt Valet, the free errand service that has served Medical Center staff and faculty since 2004.

“A hospital stay can be trying in so many ways. We're extending the services of Vanderbilt Valet as part of our Patient and Family Centered Care initiative, as an additional way to help meet the needs of our patients and their families while they're in the hospital,” said Charlotte Chaney, assistant hospital director.

Any charges for goods and services are paid by the client, but the assistance provided by Vanderbilt Valet is free.

And soon Vanderbilt Valet will again offer its free holiday gift wrapping service, which was popular last year.

Service desks are located in the second floor lobby of Medical Center North (343-8254) and on the second floor of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt (936-8253).
