Visiting Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt

Welcome to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt

When your child needs care, you want the peace of mind knowing they are being treated by skilled, experienced doctors, nurses and staff. We believe in patient- and family-centered care, which means you’re our partner in caring for your child.

As a parent or care giver, you'll have a lot of questions. We'd like to answer as many as possible before you arrive.

When you’re first told that your child needs to see a doctor, whether it is in one of our clinics, our emergency department or the hospital, feelings of fear, anger or helplessness are natural. We are here to help you. Talk to your doctor or our health care staff about your concerns. Your approach to this experience will affect your child’s attitude. We can help ease your mind and explain things to you and your child so you'll know what to expect. Our child life specialists can help you as well.
