Where to Go
When you arrive at Vanderbilt, go to Admissions on the first floor of the Main Hospital during business hours. At night (after 7:30 p.m.) you will report to the Vanderbilt Hospital Adult Emergency Room.
You and your support person will be transported to a regular hospital room where you will be prepared for surgery. This will be a busy time and many staff members will come by to see you to make sure you're ready for surgery. Bloodwork will be done, IVs started, and tests such as chest X-ray and EKG will be done.
Covered walkways connect the garages to the hospital and clinic. Patients requiring assistance can be let out at the entrances to The Vanderbilt Clinic and Vanderbilt University Hospital. Uniformed greeters at both entrances provide wheelchairs and luggage assistance. Valet parking is also available at these entrances. Patients being admitted receive complimentary valet parking.
Free parking for patients and patient visitors is available in:
- The East Garage, across from The Vanderbilt Hospital on 22nd Avenue.
- The Central Garage, at 21st Avenue and Dixie Place
- The Vanderbilt Clinic Garage, across from The Vanderbilt Clinic entrance on 22nd Avenue.
- The South Garage, across from The Vanderbilt Clinic on Children's Way.
Please have your ticket validated between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. weekdays at a validation station. No validation is necessary between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. and on weekends and holidays. Simply drop your parking ticket in the box on your way out of the garage. The gate will open automatically.
