Faculty/Staff Express Care
Faculty/Staff Express Care is provided by the Occupational Health Clinic as a benefit for Vanderbilt faculty and staff. A Vanderbilt ID is required.
We treat minor acute illnesses on a daily walk-in basis. Faculty/Staff Express Care is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Faculty/Staff Express Care is closed on the days Vanderbilt observes the following holidays (i.e. if the holiday falls on a weekend, the closure may be the Friday before or Monday after the actual holiday):
- New Year's Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Friday after Thanksgiving
- Christmas Eve
- Christmas Day
There may be a wait depending on the number of people already signed in. You can select any available walk-in appointment from the kiosk. You may wait in the lobby, or return to work until your selected time. If you choose to go back to work, return to the clinic 10 minutes prior to your selected time.
You may also print and complete the Intake form to save you time in the clinic. If you need to sign the annual Consent form, it will be available on the kiosk when you sign in.
This service is not a substitute for a Primary Care Provider (PCP). We encourage all Vanderbilt employees to have their own primary care provider to provide preventive and ongoing care. To find a Primary Care Provider, call 615-343--VUMD (6963), or sign up for My Health at Vanderbilt (MHAV) and request a PCP through the MHAV portal.
We do not participate in any insurance plans, and do not charge employees for seeing the Nurse Practitioners who provide the care at this clinic. However any external services that we order (such as lab tests or Xrays) will not be covered by your insurance, so we make every effort to connect patients with a provider on their health plan when such testing is needed.
Faculty/Staff Express Care is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00p.m. excluding Vanderbilt holidays.
